Brooks Travis, the Coordinator of Information Technology at the Missouri State University Libraries, is presenting today at WOLFcon, the World Open Library Foundation Conference, which is being held online this year. “This annual conference is open to all members of the community, and to anyone who wants to learn more about the Foundation and the open source communities that are a part of it.” This is the third such conference, which attracts approximately 250 attendees.
Brooks is one of nine panelists providing an overview to FOLIO: The Future of Libraries Is Open. The MSU Libraries was one of the first universities to implement FOLIO.
The session description reads, “FOLIO is a collaboration of libraries, developers and vendors building an open source library services platform. It supports traditional resource management functionality and can be extended into other institutional areas. This session will provide recent updates about changes to FOLIO Community governance, a brief introduction to FOLIO, the state of implementations, and testimonials from libraries using FOLIO around the world.”
Congratulations, Brooks! He presented at the January 2020 WOLFcon conference, too, just as the pandemic began to spread around the world.
