The DLF Digital Library Pedagogy group invites all interested digital library pedagogy practitioners to contribute to an immersive technologies centered #DLFteach Toolkit, an online, open resource focused on lesson plans and concrete instructional strategies. Further information about the scope and planned work scheduled is found below. We welcome practitioners from all digital library settings, roles, and career stages. Experience is less important than the willingness to be involved in the process of creating this resource.

The DLF Digital Library Pedagogy group (aka #DLFteach) is a grassroots community of practice within the larger Digital Library Federation that is open to anyone interested in learning about or collaborating on digital library pedagogy.

DLF Teach Toolkit 1.0 has been published online and is available for view.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, both the deadlines for contributor submissions to this toolkit and the publishing workflow will progress on a rolling basis. To accommodate difficulties for contributors, including limitations on testing lesson plans in the Fall 2020 semester, we will accept submissions to undergo editorial revision over three quarters of the 2020 year, and we expect to publish toolkits on a flexible basis in 2021.

Interested contributors should complete the Intent to Contribute form by July 31st, 2020. Use this form. For more information, see the publishing schedule below.

Please contact with any questions.


As 3D/VR technology becomes relevant to a wide range of scholarly disciplines and teaching context, libraries are proving well-suited to coordinating the dissemination and integration of this technology across the curriculum. We seek to coordinate a collection of instructional resources that recognizes and reflects the diversity of context and practice within this broad, emerging field. We take as models for the DLF Teach Toolkit the popular Library Instruction Cookbook (eds. Sittler and Cook) and Critical Library Pedagogy Handbook (eds. Pagowsky and McElroy).

We plan to adopt a template for submissions, as modeled by the Collections as Data Facets project. We envision that contributions will be lesson-plan like: while they won’t necessarily be full lesson plans, they should focus on providing examples of instructional goals and activities that can be put into practice.

We hope to encourage collaborations that connect participants with new areas of expertise, especially between practitioners of different levels of experience in different areas. Prospective contributors may elect individual authorship, form their own collaborative pairs or groups, or request to be paired with a collaborator of complementary interest by an Editor. Authors will be connected with a Section Editor who will facilitate the process.
