EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has assisted MOBIUS, one of the largest consortia in the United States, in migrating to the FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP). EBSCO FOLIO has provided hosting and support services for the FOLIO migration, providing 62 academic libraries representing diverse institutions with access to the open-source platform.  

FOLIO will provide a cutting-edge system that caters to the needs of modern and unique library systems like MOBIUS. EBSCO has played a pivotal role in this migration process, providing the staffing and support to migrate MOBIUS’ diverse partner libraries, large and small.  

MOBIUS Executive Director Donna Bacon expresses that the move to FOLIO is not just a migration but an exciting opportunity for MOBIUS members to leverage open-source resources with expert support. "Our involvement in open initiatives like FOLIO will be a significant step in streamlining our workflows while leveraging modern technologies. We are eager to contribute to FOLIO’s continued development, which will undoubtedly bring positive change to our workflows and the vast community we serve."  

EBSCO Information Services Director of SaaS Innovation, Christopher Holly, says MOBIUS' adoption of FOLIO opens doors for other libraries and library systems to join the open community. "FOLIO offers flexible solutions that can change as the consortium grows and evolves — ensuring that all libraries, regardless of their existing systems, can be part of this collaborative effort. This large-scale adoption underscores the impact of the transition to FOLIO in the library community and the diverse libraries these initiatives were made to support."
