The Libraries and IT (LIT) have joined the Digital Library Federation - a program of the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) that brings together a consortium of libraries that develop and use digital technologies to extend collections and services.

The Digital Library Federation (DLF) is a robust and diverse community of practitioners who advance research, learning, and the public good through digital library technologies.

The DLF serves as a resource and catalyst for collaboration among its institutional members and all who are invested in digital library issues.

DLF promotes work on the following:

  • Open digital library standards, software, interfaces, and best practices
  • Digital stewardship and curation, including research data management and aggregation and preservation services for digital collections
  • Digital humanities and other services that expand access to resources and open new opportunities for research, teaching, and learning
  • Connections among digital library practitioners and allied professions and fields
  • Community-driven frameworks for policy advocacy, professional development, issues of representation and diversity, and other matters of concern to digital library practitioners
