Topic: Project Management Lessons from FOLIO at Cornell… or, how implementing an open-source system that is still in development is like climbing a mountain with a 10-year old
Description: At the beginning of July 2021, Cornell University Library made a giant leap to the future by implementing an innovative integrated library system (ILS) called FOLIO, becoming the first large research library in the world to migrate to the platform. The journey to the successful go-live was filled with victories, roadblocks, detours, and dead ends. Join Debra Howell, FOLIO project manager, as she shares her lessons learned and reflections on a project that stretched her to the limits of her knowledge, resources, and sense of humor.
There is a small registration fee and you can earn PDUs!
