On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, the Library of Congress announced that it will be migrating to FOLIO using EBSCO FOLIO Services to “transform collections management and access” via its Library Collections Access Platform. The announcement made it clear that the Library of Congress saw the decision to move to FOLIO as a way “to further develop and implement a new, open-source IT platform that will revolutionize how the Library’s vast physical and digital collections are managed and made accessible for the public, Congress, Library employees and other institutions.”
With more than 60 institutions already using EBSCO FOLIO, and many more coming on board over the next few years (including the MOBIUS consortium), the decision by the Library of Congress cements FOLIO, the library and vendor-built open-source library services platform, as a viable option for libraries worldwide and as part of a revolutionary decision with far-reaching impact.
