Steering Group Update

On January 8, we gathered about 60 library staff who will be serving on the teams as we implement FOLIO here at Duke. We viewed a slide deck talking about the implementation timelines (ERM and the full implementation), reviewed the roles people will fill on the teams, and some basic team behaviors and norms. The larger group then broke into teams to schedule their first meeting and to review the team charters. Some teams even had time to do some brainstorming on tasks the teams should complete (for example, a glossary of terms). Members of the Duke University Libraries Executive Group attended as well to show support for the project. Teams will keep minutes from their meetings on the FOLIO project wiki. Duke staff, make sure you log in!

From January 22-24, eleven staff members of the Duke University Libraries and the David M. Rubenstein Rare Books and Manuscripts Library attended WOLFcon at Texas A&M University. WOLFcon is a gathering for members of the Open Library Foundation (OLF) and the open source software communities that are a part of OLF, including VuFind, ReShare, Coral, GOKb, and FOLIO. Local staff attended meetings regarding all parts of FOLIO, from the apps for functional areas (check-out, organizations, inventory, etc.), to discussions leaning more toward the technical (data loading, performance, accessibility, etc.).
