DLF HBCU Fellows Announced!

It is with great excitement that we announce the twenty-four (!!) outstanding DLF HBCU Fellows, primarily from historically black colleges and universities or with HBCU backgrounds, who will attend our 2017 DLF Liberal Arts/HBCUs Preconference and Forum in October, thanks to a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.

This fellowship program and pre-conference event is a collaboration between the Digital Library Federation and our friends at the HBCU Library Alliance.

The following distinguished individuals will join 18 others who were named earlier this year (sponsored by DLF in collaboration with the Kress Foundation, Association of Research Libraries, Library Juice Academy/Press, and ER&L) for a total of forty-two 2017 DLF Forum Fellows. See you in Pittsburgh!
