POST: Digital Library Federation Names Three New “DLF Futures Fellows”

Digital Library Federation (DLF) named three distinguished fellows for its new DLF Futures fellowship program, which “offers financial support and a communications platform for mid-career digital library practitioners whose projects and areas of research open up new, perhaps unexpected possibilities and future directions for the field.”

From the post:

DLF’s 2018-19 Futures Fellows are Ana Ndumu of the University of Maryland College of Information, Santi Thompson of the University of Houston Libraries, and Hannah Scates Kettler of the University of Iowa Libraries. Through the course of the fellowship year, Ndumu, Thompson, and Scates Kettler will undertake projects that explore topics as diverse as the fostering of organizational partnerships between iSchools and historically black colleges and universities; more nuanced ways to measure and assess the transformative reuse of digital library content; and future applications for 3D cultural heritage visualization.
