Hello all,

Librarians and information professionals face a complex array of opportunities to invest in open content and infrastructure while simultaneously maintaining more traditional subscription and toll-based content and access avenues. Professionals in our fields have to juggle competing priorities for limited funds, so awareness of the general open content and infrastructure scholarly communication landscape becomes ever more critical.

In an ongoing effort to help guide decisions about investing in open content, the LYRASIS Content and Scholarly Communication Initiatives team is pleased to invite you to our first ever LYROpen Fair 2022<https://www.lyrasis.org/content/Pages/LYROpen-Fair-2022.aspx>! We invite LYRASIS members and the wider scholarly community at large to register for one or more of the following three complimentary sessions at the end of March. The session speakers will be a mix of internal LYRASIS professionals and LYRASIS member libraries sharing institutional experience:

Session 1: March 24 - Link it, Find it, Count it: Open Research Infrastructure Programs at LYRASIS

*       Thursday, March 24 at 1-2pm Eastern

*       Details and Registration<https://www.lyrasis.org/Content/Pages/Event-Details.aspx?Eid=6D3400F0-B774-EC11-80F7-00155D0A2732>

*       Join us for a tour of three consortial programs designed to lower the barrier of participation for all libraries to use open research infrastructure best practices and shared standards: the ORCID US Community<https://orcidus.lyrasis.org/> (for the Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier), the LYRASIS DataCite US Community<https://www.lyrasis.org/programs/Pages/DataCite-US-Community-Membership.aspx> (for Digital Object Identifiers - DOIs), and the IRUS US Community<https://www.lyrasis.org/content/Pages/product-details.aspx?pid=94DD283E-AF8F-EA11-80EA-00155DE5EC03> (for Institutional Repository Usage Statistics).

Session 2: March 29 - Exploring Open Content Revenue Models

*       Details and Registration<https://www.lyrasis.org/Content/Pages/Event-Details.aspx?Eid=8750CD81-F28C-EC11-80FA-00155D0A2732>

*       This session will explore the myriad models for supporting open publications, including the difference between green, gold and diamond OA, Subscribe to Open, Opening the Future, and transformative agreements, as well as an overview of the models currently supported through LYRASIS Open initiatives and ways to get involved.

Session 3: March 31 - Evaluating and Supporting Open Content Programs

*       Thursday, March 31 at 12-1pm Eastern

*       Details and Registration<https://www.lyrasis.org/Content/Pages/Event-Details.aspx?Eid=DB6C7E2C-D88D-EC11-80FA-00155D0A2732>

*       During this session speakers from different sized institutions will discuss how they evaluate and advocate for financially supporting open content initiatives

*       There will also be an overview of which initiatives are currently being offered through LYRASIS

We hope these sessions create a space for people to learn about various open content models, as well as understand how to evaluate them against your internal institutional goals. A bedrock principle for the CSCI team and LYRASIS as a whole is that we can accomplish more together than alone. Together, we can meet the challenges of this shift by creating spaces to learn, understand, and ultimately, to transform the scholarly communication and research ecosystem.

We look forward to seeing you at the fair,

LYRASIS Content & Scholarly Communication Initiatives Team<https://www.lyrasis.org/about/Pages/content-and-scholarly-communication.aspx>
