FOLIO + ReShare

Open. Collective. Intelligent Collections.


CAVAL is the first in Australia to be implementing FOLIO (supported by IndexData) as we see this modern, open-source Library Management Platform benefiting and empowering the entire library community.

In the next phase we are also looking at offering a new vendor-neutral resource-sharing platform, ReShare, to our members and the wider community.
