Subject: Call for Nominations: 2018 DLF Community/Capacity Awards!


Nominations are now open for the second biennial DLF Community/Capacity Awards!


The Comm/Cap Award is an expression of gratitude from the full DLF membership, selected every other year by vote.


First announced in 2015, the Comm/Caps honor constructive, community-minded capacity-building in digital libraries and allied fields: efforts that contribute to our ability to collaborate across institutional lines and/or work toward something larger, together. The Comm/Caps are about community spirit, generosity, openness, and care for fellow digital library, archives, and museum practitioners and for the various publics and missions we serve.


The award goes to an inspiring project, team, or person selected by the DLF membership at large (one org, one vote!) but there is no need for nominees to be affiliated with a DLF member institution.


The winner (person or group) will receive a $1000 prize, one free Forum registration, and assistance with travel expenses to make it possible for a representative to accept the award in person at the 2018 DLF Forum in Las Vegas, Nevada (October 17-17).


Submit a nomination now through May 1st!


Looking forward to sharing and celebrating all of the nominees with you.
