Lyrasis is proud to serve as the organizational
home for five innovative and vital open source software communities –
ArchivesSpace, CollectionSpace, DSpace, Fedora and VIVO. As the Organizational
Home, Lyrasis provides many resources and services to help grow, support and
amplify the community contributions. These include staff, technology, financial
services and logistics support.
An Organizational Home allows the community to stay
nimble, participative and collaborative, yet also remain responsive. This
partnership allows the communities to focus on program priorities, free from
the burden of building infrastructure which is critical to long term success
and sustainability. Together with the community, Lyrasis has been able to
increase membership, improve community participation in governance, improve the
software’s usability, and create partnerships with key organizations and
