The Digital Library Federation (DLF) and HBCU Library Alliance will work in partnership to provide fellowships, mentoring, and microgrant opportunities to 45 digital library practitioners from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Participants will receive support to attend the DLF Forum or another conference of their choice, as well as dedicated, facilitated mentoring from two established and experienced mentors. They will also have the opportunity to apply for microgrant funding to undertake inter-institutional projects. This project builds on past IMLS support for collaboration, community-building, and strategic alignment between the two organizations.
