The award was designed to honor constructive, community-minded capacity-building in digital libraries and allied fields: efforts that contribute to the ability to collaborate across institutional lines and/or work toward something larger, together. Read more about the award and our fellow nominees here.

We are grateful to DLF for recognizing the incredible collaboration of Chicago Collections member institutions, our hard-working committee members, and the countless others who contributed to making EXPLORE a reality, all of whom continue to share their passion and expertise in building this organization and keeping Chicago's history and culture alive.
