Hello everyone,


The Council on Library and Information Resources is thrilled to announce that the 2023 DLF Forum Fellowship application is now open. This year we are offering a limited number of fellowship opportunities, including our GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards, in order to welcome new, dynamic voices and valuable perspectives that will enrich our events and larger community.


DLF Forum Fellowships will include: 


GLAM Cross-Pollinator and DLF Forum Fellowships will include the following:


In return, Fellows agree to share a brief (500 word) reflection on their experiences to be published on the DLF blog after the Forum.


Read more about each opportunity below and apply by completing this application. Applicants will not receive more than one award but may apply for as many awards as they are eligible. 


We purposely keep our Fellowship applications lightweight, so applicants only need to answer a few basic questions, provide a brief personal statement (500 word max), and share a copy of your resume/C.V. or a link to your online professional profile. If you have any questions about this year’s opportunities or application process, contact Team DLF at [log in to unmask]


The deadline to apply is Friday, June 9, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.


The following awards are being offered in 2023:


DLF Forum Fellowships (2)

About the Opportunity: The DLF community includes many who work in libraries and other information and cultural 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 field, see digital initiatives from other institutions, and meet leaders in the profession. 




GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards

About the Opportunity: Museum and library staff face similar challenges in the digital landscape and yet have too few opportunities to come together. Through partnerships with other GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) organizations, we strive to bring new voices and perspectives to our Forum and to send accomplished DLF practitioners to valuable conferences they might not otherwise visit. In 2023, DLF continues its tradition of “cross-pollination” with DLF community partners, offering complimentary registration to a representative from each of our partner organizations: ARLIS/NA (Art Libraries Society of North America), ASIS&T (Association for Information Science and Technology) and ER&L (Electronic Resources and Libraries).


Please note that GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards provide only DLF Forum Registration. Other costs must be covered by the attendee/their employer.


Thanks to our partners at ARLIS/NA, ASIS&T, and ER&L for making reciprocal registration awards available to DLF members in 2023!


Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for these registration awards, an applicant must be a member in good standing of one of the three organizations listed above.


The deadline to apply is Friday, June 9, at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.


The DLF Forum Fellowship Committee, made up of community volunteers, will make award decisions. Applicants will be notified of their status in mid-July.


All the best,
