Earlier this month, as part of a Kress Foundation-supported initiative, DLF put out an open call seeking new institutional members engaged with the arts. With five memberships to give away, the response was overwhelming, and we didn’t think we could choose just five—so we didn’t!
We’re quite pleased to share that with additional support from Kress as well as internal funding, the Digital Library Federation will be adding fourteen amazing organizations to our membership.
These institutions will join the DLF Museums Cohort: a space for the community to discuss digital collections questions that are particular to museums and museum libraries, and to tackle topics that resonate across museums, archives, and libraries.
- The Alliance of HBCU Museums and Galleries
- The Andy Warhol Museum
- Art Institute of Chicago
- Cleveland Museum of Art
- The Corning Museum of Glass
- The Huntington Library, Art Collection, and Botanical Gardens
- Maryland Institute College of Art
- The Menil Collection
- Museum of Impact
- National Gallery of Art
- New Museum
- The Obama Foundation
- Peabody Essex Museum Phillips Library
- Seattle Art Museum Libraries
They will be joining current Cohort members including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the New York Art Resources (NYARC) Consortium (The Brooklyn Museum, The Frick Collection, and MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art), the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, and the Getty Research Institute, as well as campus museums at our 170+ other member institutions.
If you are a DLF community member who works with arts or museum collections and services, you’re invited to join representatives from these institutions as part of the Cohort! At the group’s first call this autumn, you can learn more about DLF, meet new colleagues, and discuss what you want to see from this community! Save the date for 2pm EST on September 28!
