DLF Advisory Committee

The Digital Library Federation is led by CLIR’s president and Board of Directors, in collaboration with CLIR and DLF’s creative and energetic staff.

The DLF Advisory Committee serves the CLIR Board and the DLF community by providing advice to CLIR’s president and Board of Directors. The Advisory Committee meets annually and provides recommendations for and feedback on DLF program activities and initiatives. Members are appointed by the president of CLIR and the CLIR Board.

The Committee includes CLIR Board members serving as a subcommittee of CLIR’s full Board. In addition, several non-Board member positions on the Committee are invited from the DLF community at large, with approval from the president of CLIR and the CLIR Board. Community advisors’ terms are for two years, renewable once.
