LYRASIS will convene 60 stakeholders from open source software initiatives that serve cultural heritage organizations to identify characteristics and forms of sustainability models and factors affecting sustainability for open source software projects in the cultural heritage sector. Participants will represent a variety of open source initiatives at different stages in their evolution. The forum report will: document current practices for sustaining initiatives, create a sustainability roadmap to provide paths for planning and assessment, and provide a resource allocation guide for each phase of an open source software project's lifecycle. The forum will result in recommendations to assess and strengthen sustainability for current and new open source software designed to serve cultural heritage organizations. It also will foster communication and share knowledge among diverse open source initiatives.
