The Digital Library Federation (DLF) will provide at least 21 travel fellowships for participants from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to attend the DLF Forum conference, as well as a DLF Liberal Arts Colleges (LAC) preconference session intended to facilitate conversation between HBCUs and the DLF community. The fellowships will broaden the range of voices present at the preconference, which will focus on digital pedagogy and the curation of culturally sensitive digital collections. A final report will discuss the outcomes of the meeting and help set the direction for future partnerships between the DLF LAC community and the HBCU Library Alliance.
