EBSCO Information Services and MOL partner to support libraries looking to adopt FOLIO in Poland

MOL, the leading provider of library software in Poland, has announced a partnership with EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) to support libraries adopting the FOLIO Library Services Platform (LSP). This partnership will provide hosting and local support services for FOLIO libraries throughout Poland.

With more than 30 years of experience, MOL has been successfully integrated with roughly 8,000 libraries of varying sizes and functions. This partnership will allow libraries across Poland to choose their preferred method of hosting and support services from their trusted, local vendor when adopting FOLIO.

MOL CEO Małgorzata Gajkiewicz says MOL was looking for a modern and scalable solution to bring to Poland. "This collaboration with EBSCO adds another layer of innovation and openness, modernizing the way we support our libraries throughout Poland. We have engaged with the development community to build solutions specific to the Polish market, and now we are able to implement and support in Poland, too."

EBSCO Information Services Director of FOLIO Partnerships, Mark Allcock, says partnering with MOL ensures libraries receive the trusted support they need from a well-known, local vendor. "This partnership is paramount in helping libraries in Poland feel confident that their needs are valued when moving to FOLIO. Our partnership with MOL prioritizes the importance of diversity, creating this relationship to better meet the specific needs of local libraries."

Designed from the ground up as an open platform, FOLIO marries traditional ILS functionality with flexibility and freedom of choice. With this modular focus in mind, MOL and other community members can contribute applications that support libraries' diverse needs. More information is available at www.folio.org.
