FOLIO is designed from the ground up as an open platform. Selected apps can be deployed in order to create a highly customized solution. With this modular focus, the library can choose which apps to include or exclude, as desired. FOLIO applications are designed to “snap-in” and easily connect to each other, allowing for libraries to create customized workflows and systems in their FOLIO environment.
EBSCO FOLIO functionality includes apps that are made available through the FOLIO community project as well as apps that are unique to your EBSCO FOLIO implementation.
Apps for FOLIO cover traditional library management functionality and more. Examples include:
Circulation — apps to manage check in / check out of materials, view circulation reports, manage course reserves, and circulation requests
Acquisitions — apps to manage orders, invoices and financials as well the receipt of materials
Cataloging — apps to manage and update records, manage inventory and data import / export
E-resources management — apps to manage agreements, view analytics and manage the library’s eHoldings
Administration — apps to manage an institutional calendar, document information on organizations such as vendors or consortia libraries, and manage users in the system
Panorama Essentials — an analytics app included with EBSCO FOLIO that features a central dashboard to collect, manipulate and display data about the library and users
Tasks — an app for users to structure and search tasks at various levels, view and sort tasks, record their progress and keep updated on their work
