Where can you find FOLIO documentation?

FOLIO documentation consists of the following repositories and sites:

Contributing to is maintained by members of the Documentation Working Group. Individual members are listed to the right, along with areas they are responsible for. 

Basic workflows for how documentation is maintained are described under Resources for Docs WG members.

Anyone who wants to ask for improvement or addition to documentation should create a FOLIO jira ticket and assign it to the DOCS project.

If you are not sure who should work on the ticket so you don't know who to assign it to, please also leave a comment in the #documentation-wg Slack channel.

For resources for working group members in Jira, see Using Jira to manage work for docs.folio.org0ad7a2c9-e8c4-4f35-afe4-bdb26fd5e5f0

Community members who are interested in helping with documentation should reach out to a member of the Working Group to find out how you can help. 

Future plans


Internationalization of the Hugo-based docs.folio site has been completed in 2020. A proof-of-concept for the German localization (= actual translation) is being stored on a separate branch (Branch/Pull Request, Preview) until such time that content is ready for inclusion and gets approved by the German translation team.

Context-sensitive Help

Future work should include a mechanism for users to click on an area of the user interface and open the relevant section of the documentation for help.
