FOLIO Meet-up Colorado 2019

Imagine a community working together to develop technologies that meet the unique functional needs of each library today, while positioning libraries to grow and evolve into the future. In this one-day symposium, discuss the FOLIO project, a community collaboration to develop an open source platform that will support traditional library management functionality and is built for innovation. Join fellow librarians from Colorado as we explore the future of library technology.
