The FOLIO Project is a collaborative effort to build a platform of services for libraries. Linked to this page is information how how to get started with your journey in the FOLIO community.
For an introduction to the tools used in the project, see the recording of this webinar. The complete list of tools is available on the FOLIO website; these are the key tools:
- 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.
- Email your Google account name to Anne Highsmith and she will arrange for you to have access to the Open Library Foundation Google Drive named OLF_Shared. This is where all FOLIO project-related files are stored.
How FOLIO is Built
Creating a platform of apps with people from all over the world is one of our community's strengths. Learn how we design apps and develop software with these webinar recordings. We also have a Glossary of Terms of terms to help you get acquainted to the project.
