LYRASIS offers a fully hosted deployment of the Library Simplified software on cloud-based infrastructure for both members and non-members. The LYRASIS team manages the proper set-up and configuration of the software, administers the cloud-based hardware via Amazon Web Services, and supports libraries with the launch of the SimplyE mobile applications to patrons. LYRASIS hosting also includes online orientation sessions to the Library Simplified and SimplyE systems for library administrators.

LYRASIS, partnering with DPLA, makes hosting the Library Simplified solution and sourcing content from other platforms such as the DPLA Exchange easy. This hosted option allows libraries to take control of their eContent shelves, merge open content with that from many providers and deliver it in SimplyE. Hosting it with LYRASIS makes it turnkey and seamless.
