The FOLIO@Duke Newsletter is a communications tool intended to keep staff abreast of news, schedules and important information regarding the development and implementation of FOLIO at Duke. We will regularly convey four main cornerstones of the project in each newsletter. Those cornerstones are Steering Group Updates, highlights of the project’s driving values and road map, discussion of FOLIO design and functionality, and updates about Duke’s migration activities and timeline.
In this issue:

Thank you to all who have served on the various SIGs and SIG Subgroups! Your work helps make sure Duke’s needs are met by FOLIO.
The Data Retreat was held on February 11, and included participants from across the Duke University Libraries, facilitators, and representatives from technical services from the Goodson Law Library and the Ford Library. The focus was creating a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) for DUL owned catalog, acquisitions, patron, and circulation data. We discussed data standards that are currently in use, challenges we face when data we receive is inconsistent, and the importance of having the systems external to our ILS having access to consistent data. There was agreement that it was time well spent and that another retreat should be held.
