Digital POWRR nominated for DLF Comm/Cap award!


From the DLF announcement:

The Community/Capacity Awards (DLF Comm/Caps, for short) are a new debt of gratitude from the DLF membership, selected annually by vote. We are pleased to announce the nominees for the 2016 DLF Comm/Cap Awards!

These are not awards for pure innovation, individualism, or disruption. Instead, they honor constructive, community-minded capacity-building in digital libraries and allied fields: efforts that contribute to our ability to collaborate across institutional lines and/or work toward something larger, together. The Comm/Caps are about community spirit, generosity, openness, and care for fellow digital library, archives, and museum practitioners and for the various publics and missions we serve.

The 2016 DLF Comm/Cap Award will go to an inspiring project, team, or person selected by the Digital Library Federation membership at large (one org, one vote: we will send voting instructions soon to DLF’s primary contact at each member organization; you decide locally how to make your pick!).

The 2016 DLF Comm/Cap Award winner (person or group) will receive a $1000 prize, one free Forum registration, and assistance toward travel expenses to make it possible for a representative to accept the award certificate in person at the 2016 DLF Forum, which will be held in Milwaukee, WI, November 7-9th.

Congratulations and thank you to all nominees!

This is some excellent company to be keeping, I tell you what. That is an epic list of nominees, all of whom have done amazing work.

I am incredibly proud of the work that Digital POWRR has done, and I’m honored that our work has made such an impact on the cultural heritage community. Thank you for this recognition.
