BCR and LYRASIS are pleased to announce a collaborative agreement to transition BCR members to LYRASIS membership in the fall of 2010. Beginning immediately, the agreement will allow members of both BCR and LYRASIS to purchase products and services offered by either organization.
The provisions of the agreement will enable BCR members to experience a seamless transition with immediate access to LYRASIS training classes and the ability to purchase electronic resources at discounted rates. Current BCR members will become members of LYRASIS effective October 1, 2010 with no LYRASIS dues for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2010/11. This membership will be effective through June 30, 2011.
In order to ensure continuity of service for BCR members, LYRASIS is adding some BCR employees to its staff and will maintain a regional office in Denver to facilitate operations on a long-term basis. BCR will phase out its operations by the end of December 2010.
