DLF Project Managers Group
The Digital Library Federation Project Managers Group (DLF PMG) was formed in 2008 to acknowledge the intersection of the discipline of project management and library technology. The group provides a forum for sharing project management methodologies and tools, alongside broader discussions that consider issues such as portfolio management and cross-organizational communication. The group also maintains an eye towards keeping pace with the dynamic digital library landscape, by bringing new and evolving project management practices to the attention and mutual benefit of our colleagues.
Past meeting presentation and notes are available on the DLF website.
Crowdsourced Project Management Toolkit
DLF Project Managers Toolkit is a collaborative project, which offers crowdsourced information, tips, techniques, and tools for project managers working in or with digital libraries. Take advantage of this resource for your projects. Post your ideas and knowledge to share with others!
The DLF Project Management Toolkit was initiated by Jennifer Vinopal at New York University in February 2013. First started as a Google doc, it remains a living document.
- Attend the Project Managers Working Lunch at the DLF Forum each year, where members of the group discuss various needs and topics, and work to identify ways to support them.
