Agenda

  • Review of the membership analysis. Below are the areas for improvement
    1. Community Engagement

    2. Long Tail of Membership

    3. Representation of Diversity

  • Brainstorm actionable ideas based on the recommendations

Notes

Where should we focus membership engagement? Report outlines three groups to focus on

Group A: high number of sites and members (US, Canada, UK, Australia, Switzerland)

Looking at gap between installation sites and memberships

  • US 144 / 46
  • Canada 28 / 7
  • Oceania 40 / 4
  • UK 24 / 5
  • Europe 104 / 10
  • Asia 11 / 1
  • Latin America 6 / 0

Group B: high number of implementations, no members 

  • Spain: 11 installations, 0 members
  • New Zealand: 13 installations, 0 members
  • Lithuania: 17 installations, 0 members
  • Germany: 12 installations, 1 member
  • Croatia: 9 installations, 0 member
  • France: 5 installations, 0 member
  • Italy: 5 installations, 0 member
  • Greece: 4 installations, 0 members

Group C: low number of sites and members ← doesn't make sense to us to focus here.

Note: We did not get to discussing items 2 and 3.


Recommendations from the Group:

  1. General Recommendations for moving work forward
    1. Develop a story for library directors re: why you should join Lyrasis AND Fedora?
    2. Does Lyrasis have a communications & marketing profession who could help us develop a more sophisticated and successful outreach/membership development strategy?
    3. What support services does Lyrasis offer to its communities?
  2. Membership Specific Recommendations
    1. Focus on locations with high gap between high implementations with low/no memberships (Group A and Group B)
    2. Target specific consortia and membership orgs (e.g., UK-based Digital Preservation Coalition, DCC, ask David about Canadian Consortiums)
