​LYRASIS supports a variety of Open Access (OA) initiatives and programs that create inclusive opportunities for diverse institutions to engage with an evolving scholarly communication and publishing landscape. In addition to the support for the programs listed below, LYRASIS regularly communicates with members and content providers to negotiate the best possible terms incorporating OA into licenses where relevant and reasonable for our diverse subscriber communities.

​ Program Partners and Initiatives

In addition to open access initiatives, we also enable support for open research infrastructure through the ORCID US Community and the LYRASIS DataCite US Community programs.
