The Board of Directors of the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) has approved three new members to serve on the Digital Library Federation (DLF) Advisory Committee, which advises the DLF director on matters relating to program activities, initiatives, partnerships, and strategy.

The new members are Patricia Hswe, Digital Content Strategist and Head, ScholarSphere User Services at Pennsylvania State University; Trevor Muñoz, Associate Director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH); and Bess Sadler, Manager for Application Development, Digital Library Systems, at Stanford University Library.
