Hello everyone,


I wanted to take some time to welcome you all to our newest DLF groups listserv for our Museums Cohort community. If you’re new to the Museums Cohort, I recommend taking a look at our YouTube playlist of some of our past meeting recordings to get an idea of what the Cohort has been up to over the past few years: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLl7V7chP13lDycOCO7vL19vAiNC3fHEhY


As the Cohort has grown and evolved to provide a space for GLAM practitioners to come together to share projects and practical knowledge on a monthly basis with no barriers to participation, we want to provide a space for the community to continue to connect with one another in between monthly meetings to ask questions, solve problems, and share news.


We’d love to know more about who’s involved with the Cohort, so, if you’re comfortable, please introduce yourself and let us know how you’re connected to museums. I’ll start: I’m Gayle, and though I’m now DLF’s Program Associate working closely with DLF’s working groups, my prior position was Digital Exhibitions Coordinator at Atlanta University Center’s Robert W. Woodruff Library, where I collaborated with the Archives and the on-campus museums on digital exhibits tied to the curriculum. Before heading to library school, I also spent two years volunteering at the Susan B. Anthony House & Museum in my hometown of Rochester, NY.


I look forward to getting to know you, and stay tuned for this week’s monthly Cohort newsletter where we’ll be announcing the presenters for our upcoming August 26 meeting.
