- FOLIO Slack channels for real-time chat are available at folio-project.slack.com. Request to join the FOLIO Slack channels here. Many of the developers and systems operation staff use Slack every day as primary means of communicating. Subject matter experts can also ask quick questions in between meeting times. Check out the various Slack channels to see which are of interest to you.
- FOLIO uses JIRA at issues.folio.org for tracking FOLIO tasks and bugs. The account you set up in JIRA is the same account you will use to edit Confluence (our wiki, which you are using right now).
- Sign up for e-lists of interest at ole-lists.openlibraryfoundation.org. Joining the folio-announce email list may be particularly useful to receive cross-project announcements on releases, events, open meetings, elections, membership calls, formal updates, workgroup task completion, calls for feedback, important reminders, and more.
