The Expanding Cohort

In late summer 2018, DLF held an open call and accepted applications from a number of institutions who are now core members of our Museums Cohort—a group of cultural and arts organizations who are working with other DLF members, across disciplinary and institutional boundaries, to build skills, share ideas, strengthen digital engagement and collections, and advance technological initiatives in service of their common mission. All members, with 2018 additions in italics:

Get involved!

The #DLFMuseums Cohort, just like our working groups, is open to all.
Get to know others working on digital preservation, collections and museum libraries management, rights management, teaching, user engagement and more—across the cultural heritage sector!

Anyone with museum interests or who engages in public or academic museum-based projects is warmly invited participate in meetings and activities.

Leadership

The #DLFmuseums community is a self-directing group. Meetings are lightly facilitated by DLF staff, who set topics of conversation based on community suggestions and ideas. Need feedback about a project, or have something exciting to share? Want to discuss a local issue or challenge? Get in touch to be reserve some time at an upcoming meeting.

Meeting attendees include students and professionals from all over the world. See past agendas for more detailed information about who’s here and what we’re up to.

Monthly meetings

Join us on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern via DLF’s Zoom video conference line. Topics covered in 2019 have included workflows for email archiving, preserving born-digital materials, using tools like Bitcurator. 

Communication
