Open Research Infrastructure Programs
In addition to open access initiatives, Lyrasis serves as the US community home for three consortial programs designed to lower the barrier of participation for organizations of different sizes, missions, and constituencies to leverage best practices for open research infrastructure:
ORCID US Community – a national consortium and community of practice for non-profit organizations that are members of ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier).
Lyrasis DataCite US Community – a national consortium and community of practice for non-profit organizations assigning DataCite DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) to their local research and scholarly materials.
IRUS (Institutional Repository Usage Statistics) US Community – allows participating organizations to gather open, COUNTER-compliant usage statistics for materials in repositories.
Lyrasis recognizes its members and others in the library community who support and invest in Lyrasis OA program partners by including these institutions in our list of
