Hello ArchivesSpace Members,

ArchivesSpace is featured in a recent publication from the IMLS-funded "It Takes a Village<https://www.lyrasis.org/technology/Pages/IMLS-OSS.aspx>" project about Open Source Software programs. Some information from the press release is below.

LYRASIS is proud to announce the release of the Open Source Software Sustainability Guidebook as the culmination of the "It Takes a Village<https://www.lyrasis.org/technology/Pages/IMLS-OSS.aspx>" project. The Guidebook is designed to serve as a practical reference source to help open source software programs serving cultural and scientific heritage organizations plan for long-term sustainability. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services - Grant LG-73-17-0005-17; LYRASIS appreciates their support.

The full press release is available at: http://lyrasisnow.org/press-release-itav-guidebook/ and the guidebook is available at https://www.lyrasis.org/technology/Pages/IMLS-OSS.aspx.

Laurie Gemmill Arp, Director, Collections Services & Community Supported Software at LYRASIS, was the co-director (along with CollectionSpace Program Manager Megan Forbes) for the project. Several people represented ArchivesSpace including Program Manager Christine Di Bella, Technical Lead Laney McGlohon and David Millman from NYU. Christine also contributed a case study for the guidebook about ArchivesSpace community engagement and its growth over the years.

Being participants in an open source software program yourselves, we thought you may enjoy learning more about how these programs address common challenges and thinking about the opportunities for collaboration that our involvement in such a project may provide in the future. If you have any questions, feel free to direct them to Laurie or Christine.
