Hello Five Colleges!
If you’re looking for a better understanding of the electronic resource management apps in FOLIO, then look no further! Owen Stephens, a UK developer who acts as product owner for the Agreement and License Apps has developed a glossary for the two apps with explanations what each field is expected to be used for as well as default settings and reference values. Please note, the FOLIO Electronic Resources Management (FERM) Working Group has customized our settings and reference data so the values in the spreadsheets below may not reflect what appears in the 5C tenant settings. Owen has put out several spreadsheets which are linked below:
FERM will be working over the next several weeks to stress test our customized values and will submit changes to the hosting team at EBSCO. We expect much of what is currently in the Daisy settings to migrate into Edelweiss. Once we’ve finalized our settings and reference data we will be creating local versions of the above spreadsheets as well as some best practices for working in the FOLIO ERM apps. If you have questions on a field, see something you think might be missing, or just want to learn more – please reach out to your local FERM member or to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can try and get you an answer.
FERM meets twice a month to discuss FOLIO ERM as well as our mutual Full Text Finder (FTF) migrations. If you’d like us to consider something for discussion please send it to your local FERM rep.
