Thanks Peter,
Developments like Folio are a great opportunity to widen out the notion of 'library systems.' In the past there have been attempts to 'bend' library systems and the MARC format to meet the needs of other areas such as archives and museums. These have had only limited success and have rarely (if ever?) gone beyond some form of data aggregation for discovery. In terms of archives I think (not quite sure of my ground here) that the US has tended to make use of MARC whereas Canada and the UK eschew that in favour of ISAD(G)/EAD -I believe because they can better represent the hierarchical ("fonds" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fonds ) nature of archives. Spectrum seems to rule for museums (and in the UK being 'Spectrum compliant' helps in getting museum 'accreditation' I believe) 
Perhaps Folio should talk to (see my other email) System Simulation and Soutron for example and get them involved? Archives hub https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/about/ in the UK is also brilliant with a lot of expertise. It is a national Jisc service and I know Jisc is supporting Folio but I wonder if they have thought about specifically involving the Archive Hub people?

System Simulation based in London. http://www.ssl.co.uk/ 

Soutron too has done some work on an integrated library and archive solution. https://www.soutron.com/products/soutron-combined-library-archive/

I'll humbly suggest that FOLIO might be a platform for that coherent whole, albeit one that isn't ready for such a role today.  The service platform concept enables apps to cooperate on storing and operating on data in the system.  There has been early talk about the needs for library special collections departments for attached record types like "conservation treatment" and reading room requests.  The core of the platform is metadata agnostic...it will enable several descriptive record formats to coexist in the same system.  The authority control and linked data elements are beyond the plans for v1 to be ready next year; it would be useful to have archive and museum perspectives complement the library perspectives that are a part of the project now.
