Consider nominating someone from your team!

The DLF community includes staff who work in libraries and other information institutions who are lively, intellectually engaged, and inquisitive, but who are not always routinely funded to travel to conferences where they can learn more about the library profession, see digital initiatives from other institutions, and meet leaders in the profession.

The DLF community welcomes newcomers to the profession and new voices at the Forum. To further this aim the DLF will continue to provide DLF Forum Fellowships for New Professionals. The Forum is an excellent place to hear about the latest advances in digital librarianship, to meet new colleagues and contacts, and to get involved with DLF initiatives.


Four awards of up to $1,250 each to go towards the travel, board, and lodging expenses of attending the DLF Forum. Additionally, the fellows will each receive a complimentary full registration to the Forum ($475). Fellowship recipients will be required to write a blog post, subsequent to the Forum, about their experience; this blog post will be published by DLF.


Applicants and nominations must come from a current DLF member institution. The following full- or part-time individuals are eligible:


Send an email containing the following items (in one document) to [log in to unmask], with the subject "Forum Fellowship: [Full Name]:

Applications must be submitted before 4 pm EDT on June 16.


Candidates will be selected by the Forum Program Planning Committee. In assessing the applications, the Committee will look for a demonstrated commitment to digital library work as evidenced by work experience and academic background, and will consider the degree to which forum participation might influence the applicant’s decision to pursue a digital library career. They will also make sure that the applicants meet the basic eligibility requirements. Applicants will be notified of their status by June 27, 2014.

 The 2014 DLF Forum will be in Atlanta, October 27-29.
