September Call: Community Share-outs


 with colleagues



Our next virtual DLF Museums Cohort call takes place on

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at 2pm ET/11am PT.


This month, the topic is up to you! We'll have the opportunity to promote completed projects, ask attendees questions that have been raised while working on current projects, or discuss any topic of interest to the DLF Museums community in an informal, "salon"-style setting. If you have a topic you'd like to make sure we discuss, you can sign up in advance on the meeting agenda (but don't worry, it's not required to attend).





Looking Back / Looking Ahead





Last month: In August, we welcomed Ashley Kelleher and Jessica Williams of the British Museum Library to discuss the library's transition to their first new library management system in over 20 years and the subsequent launch of the library's new online catalog. Miss the meeting? You can catch up on the conversation in our shared meeting notes and watch the presentation recording on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/kMkaoK45QGk.


Next month: In October, we'll hear from the New York Botanical Garden's Regina Vitiello and Rashad Bell about their work decolonizing the language of collection catalogs from the NYBG's Steere Herbarium and LuEster T. Mertz Library.
