LYRASIS partners with member libraries
and cultural heritage organizations to create, access and manage
information with an emphasis on digital content, while building and
sustaining collaboration, enhancing operations and technology, and
increasing buying power.
A non-profit membership organization,
LYRASIS was established in April 2009 with a collective history of
legacy networks that dates back to 1936. LYRASIS continues its mission
of supporting information professionals by offering creative solutions
and increased savings opportunities.
With a diverse membership and large in
scale, LYRASIS works closely with library and cultural heritage
organization professionals and their staff to build and maintain valued
relationships, making frequent connections with site visits,
conferences and e-communications.
Inspired by the constellation of “Lyra,” one
of the galaxy's brightest stars and guiding lights, and the suffix,
“sis” which denotes a process of change, the LYRASIS name reflects our
objective to collaborate with information professionals and to provide guidance and support to them and their
institutions as they serve their communities.
