Storing and managing the personal data of patrons and the research data of academics requires a reliable, private, secure and flexible software setup.

In the FOLIO project, the issue of data management is being addressed through continuous dialogue with end users about data management in different apps; as well as through a dedicated Privacy SIG, that advises the project on things to be aware of.

Privacy and security when it comes to data is something we all need to be very aware of when we discuss, design, develop or plan functionality for FOLIO, so all community members are encouraged to be aware and provide any advice or ideas they may have on a recurring basis.

FOLIO is a community project, in which privacy, security and other parts of the system depends on a communal effort to make sure the system works well and in a way that protects end users, their data and their rights.
