FOLIO, as a community-driven effort, is made up of people, and is shaped by
the goals and strategic interests of those participants. More than
software, FOLIO is a shared and open space where the library community can
share our needs and wants, where we can discuss how and where libraries
innovate and help shape the direction of the systems we rely on. It is
within this space that software can be designed and held consistent to
those strategic services that libraries provide to, and wish to innovate
for, their communities.

It is important to understand that FOLIO is not the exclusive domain of
large research libraries and well-resourced consortia. As a
participant-driven community, FOLIO welcomes input from the wide and
diverse library community. This panel will explore FOLIO from the
perspective of three small to mid sized organizations. They will look at
resource management needs, their need to align more closely with the
broader academic institution, and the need for real innovation in library
technology. Each will discuss how FOLIO supports their strategic aims, and
provides avenues for engagement, impact, and leadership, no matter the size
of the institution.

There will be plenty of time for questions.
