Atlanta, GA August 18, 2011 LYRASIS, the nation's largest non-profit regional membership organization for libraries and information professionals, and AtoZdatabases, a new premier reference database source for libraries, academic and government institutions, have joined forces to expand reference databases options for LYRASIS members.
