The DLF Born Digital Access Working Group (BDAWG) is seeking 2 co-coordinators. Information on the responsibilities of the co-coordinators is available here: DLF BD Access Working Group Coordinator Responsibilities; co-coordinators generally have a suggested time commitment about 5 hours per month.

The call is open to anyone, and we are seeking candidates with the following:

  • An interest in community-oriented work
  • A commitment to open communication and consensus-building processes
  • An interest in working with born-digital cultural heritage materials
  • A willingness to plan BD Access-relevant programming at the DLF Forum
  • The capacity to dedicate about 5 hours per month to coordination tasks
It would be ideal, but not required, if candidates had experience with group coordination work and experience attending the DLF Forum or working with DLF. Candidates do not need to be an institutional member of DLF.

Nominate someone (it can be yourself!) to serve as co-coordinator here: DLF BD Access Working Group Co-Coordinator Nomination Form.

The nomination form will be open until January 29, after which Jessika and Karla, the current co-coordinators, will assemble the ballot and gather more information from candidates, as needed. The community will vote on the ballot between February 8-12, and the new co-coordinators will be announced in mid-February, with the goal of assuming full leadership for the group by early March. The current co-coordinators will act as mentors during the hand-off period.

Please feel free to reach out to Karla (karla...@unlv.edu) or Jessika Drmacich (jg...@williams.edu) with questions.

Thank you!
