We would like to share our work on Perpetua at WOLFcon, as the first non-core app to be integrated with FOLIO’s platform. We would like to present during a FOLIO plenary session. It would be a fantastic opportunity to introduce ourselves to the FOLIO community and begin to engage and collaborate. Perpetua is a software solution for safeguarding, preservation and providing access to a wide range of digital content types that are often part of the library remit. This includes scholarly outputs, research data, special collections and institutional records. Arkivum is integrating Perpetua as an app into the FOLIO ecosystem, which will provide support in FOLIO for preserving and safeguarding digital content for the long-term. Perpetua builds upon and integrates several community open source solutions including Archivematica for digital preservation and Access to Memory (AtoM) for archive information management and online access. Along with open specifications and APIs, Perpetua fits well with the FOLIO philosophy and fills a gap in FOLIO capabilities (e.g. as identified in the FOLIO working group whitepaper on special collections and archives). This includes the ability for libraries to use Perpetua within FOLIO to store, preserve, manage and access their special collections and archives using archival standards (ISADG etc.) and be able to describe both physical and digital content that they hold. Perpetua will integrate with the FOLIO codex and its Data Model. For example, this will ensure that special collections are discoverable alongside other resources in a uniform way. Users will be able to search for content through the codex and then be directed to Perpetua where they can view the full record for matching content. If items are in digital form (e.g. images, audio, video, documents etc.) then users will be able to view/play them directly in Perpetua. Likewise, for digital content that already exists in FOLIO, e.g. in repositories or other applications, we are looking at how this could be transferred into Perpetua for additional safeguarding and preservation.

Strive for Revive in the Frontier of a New Horizon: the Case of Shanghai Library
Members of the library will present a summary of the requirements for upgrading Shanghai Library’s platform. They will discuss the needs of needs of being a metropolitan public library, a research library, and the center of a whole-city library alliance. They will discuss the basic functional modules scheduled in the Shanghai Library's upgrades in 2021, as well as the aspects that need to be coordinated and supported by the international FOLIO community. They will also introduce considerations for the future of the FOLIO community in China, such as code contribution, an app store, compatibility evaluation, alliance service, etc.
