Project ReShare is a community-driven effort to inject new life into the resource sharing space. The project was announced in November 2018 by a group of consortial leaders, software developers, software foundations, and resource sharing experts. ReShare’s goal is to produce an open source, highly scalable resource sharing platform using the FOLIO platform and UI toolkit as a starting point.
This forum will introduce ReShare and describe the project’s goals, governance model, planned timeline, and opportunities for participation. We will also discuss the ways that ReShare is helping to further the model for community-owned software within the library field. We’ll address the intersection between ReShare and the FOLIO project, and examine the ways that a modular, open source architecture can benefit not only individual projects, but the library ecosystem as a whole.
