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 members.
