Over the past 5 years Ian has moved the FOLIO community forward while working with our partners to make them the happiest libraries using this new technology in the world. On top of this Ian has been instrumental in evolving our internal tooling as well as investigating options for the future while continuing work on Cerulean and other special projects. He has also been a lead in our roll out of Metabase and with helping our Coral partners by developing migration plans for the move over to Koha's ERM. Since taking on the role of Head of Special Projects Ian has not hesitated to jump into the community and launch an easier implementation process for new libraries"
