Museum and library staff face similar challenges in the digital landscape and yet have too few opportunities to come together. Initially supported by generous Kress grants from 2015-2017, the DLF Cross-Pollinator program, in partnership with other GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums) organizations, endeavors to build bridges among our communities, bring new voices and perspectives to the DLF Forum, and continue our efforts at “cross-pollination” by sending DLF practitioners to valuable conferences they might not otherwise visit.
Award winners for all opportunities will be selected by CLIR/DLF staff in consultation with partner organizations. You may apply for multiple awards, but preference will be given to applicants who have not yet been a GLAM Cross-Pollinator Fellow.
An award covers the cost of registration at one partner conference and can be applied retroactively for a full refund if payment has already been submitted. Conference dates are as follows:
Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L), Austin, Texas, March 5-8, 2023Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA), Mexico City, Mexico, April 18-21, 2023Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T), London, England, October 27-31, 2023
Awardees’ only obligations to DLF are to fully engage in the conference they attend and write a brief reflection on their experience for the DLF blog.
To be eligible for a GLAM Cross-Pollinator Award, an applicant must be a current employee or student at a DLF member organization.
Successful candidates will demonstrate a commitment to advancing research, learning, social justice, and/or the common good through the creation and/or use of digital library and museum technologies.
Applicants must supply contact information, a resume or C.V., and a personal statement (500 words or less) about how attending the conference of your choice will expand your professional horizons, and what you can contribute in the role of ‘cross-pollinator’.
Applications for each award will close at 11:59 pm ET on each of the following dates:
To attend ER&L: Deadline has passed To attend ARLIS/NA: Deadline has passedTo attend ASIS&T: Deadline has passed
Applicants will be notified of their status within two weeks of the closing date.
