The State of FOLIO: Numbers and Muses

,

As the calendar turned to a new year, we took the opportunity to reflect on the state of FOLIO today.

The Index Data team members are excited to have jumpstarted this open source effort, and the numbers tell a story of a growing and highly engaged community.

To get beyond the numbers, we asked some of the project leaders to share their thoughts on where FOLIO is today and where it’s going.

2017 was a year of remarkable progress for FOLIO, and we have good reasons to believe that 2018 will be even more exciting!  Index Data is eager to engage with the community and be at the forefront of welcoming new participants to the FOLIO project.
