Abstract: The March 2016 issue of Smart Libraries Newsletter included coverage of the planned merger of DuraSpace into Lyrasis. The boards of both organizations had voted to pursue combining the organizations and had moved into a public comment phase. The final phase of due diligence and negotiations, however, did not result in a merger. Both organizations will continue to operate independently under their individual boards and organizational structure. Although the merger discussions have terminated, both organizations have strong issues related to open source governance and will continue informal collaboration
