DLF Digest: January 2022
A monthly round-up of news, upcoming
working group meetings and events, and
CLIR program updates from the
Digital Library Federation.
This month’s news:
- Join us in Baltimore! The call for the 2022 DLF Forum volunteer planning committee is open now through Friday, January 14. Next year’s event will take place in Baltimore, Maryland,
in October 2022. For more information about committee roles and time commitments, and to apply to join the planning committee, head to the volunteer form here:
- Applications are now being accepted for the 2022
Leading Change Institute (LCI), to be held July 10–15 in Washington DC. Cosponsored by CLIR and EDUCAUSE, LCI is designed for leaders in higher education—including CIOs, librarians, information technology professionals,
and administrators—who are interested in working collaboratively to promote and initiate change on critical issues affecting the academy. Applications are due by January 10.
- CLIR recently announced award recipients for its new “Pocket Burgundy” publication series. The series, which derives its name from the deep red covers of CLIR’s traditional
research reports, will focus on shorter pieces—20 to 50 pages—addressing current topics in the information and cultural heritage community. View the awardees
- CLIR offices will be Monday, January 17, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
