Conducting shelf inventory using FOLIO

This is a core activity that my institution wants to do once our collections are returned to our library post-renovation (hopefully in 2025). We aren't sure how to conduct an inventory using FOLIO and want to know if anyone else is planning or has done inventory using FOLIO. If no one has, what would be needed to do this important activity with FOLIO?Lynne Fors (Wellesley)Metadata Management, Resource Access
