Forums 2020: In focus

Location: UCLA Library Conference Center

280 Charles E. Young Drive North, Los Angeles, CA 90095

The Leaders Forums theme this year is “In focus”. Now that LYRASIS and DuraSpace has merged, we are focusing in on what matters most---our members and the issues and topics that are facing our cultural heritage communities today specifically this year on two topics: scholarly communication/publishing and diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion (DEAI). During the Member Summit in Chicago (2019), the Leader Circle Members in attendance selected these two topics to further research. Together, LYRASIS and the Leaders Circle are conducting an open content survey for the scholarly publishing topic to learn and understand what institutions are doing regarding supporting and/or establishing scholarly communication publications. For DEAI, we will focus on initiatives within libraries, archives and museums and how those initiatives ensure staff engagement and diverse collections.

We will also continue to focus on technology, and the 10+ open source communities we support and serve. We’ll examine these topics these through real-world case studies, panel discussions and projects presented by experts in archives, libraries, museums, galleries and publishing.
