The DLF Community Spotlight is a occasional web-series that targets projects, services and programs that address net-scale solutions and demonstrate intra-institutional collaboration. The goal of this series is to communicate the basic facts about large scale, multi-partner initiatives happening across the library and IT communities in Higher Education.
FactSheets is a CLIR/DLF publication created for the Committee on Coherence at Scale for Higher Education. FactSheets are provided via the DLF Community Spotlight series.
