Call for Applications: 2023 DLF GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards

ASIS&T is pleased to partner with the Digital Library Federation (DLF) in order to announce the return of the GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards in 2023. 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 attend. We are thrilled to welcome a new partner in 2023, the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T), as well as partner once again with Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) and Electronic Resources & Libraries (ER&L).

GLAM Cross-Pollinator awards cover the cost of registration for awardees affiliated with a DLF member organization at one partner conference and can be applied retroactively for a full refund if payment has already been submitted. The 2023 partner conference locations and dates are:

Applications for members of ER&L, ARLIS/NA, and ASIS&T to attend the 2023 DLF Forum will open this spring. Subscribe to the DLF Forum Newsletter for updates as they become available.

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.

Application deadline for both the ER&L and ARLIS/NA conferences is Friday, February 3, 2023.

Additional information on awards and eligibility, including a link to the lightweight application form, can be found on the GLAM Cross-Pollinators program page
