We’re thrilled to announce today our fourth call for applications for the DPLA Community Reps program! The application for this fourth class of Reps will close on Friday, February 19, 2016.

What is the DPLA Community Reps program? In brief, we’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to help us bring DPLA to their local communities through outreach activities or support DPLA by working on special projects. A local community could be a school, a library, an academic campus, a professional network in your space, or another group of folks who you think might be interested in DPLA and what it has to offer. Reps give a small commitment of time to community engagement, collaboration with fellow Reps and DPLA staff, and check-ins with DPLA staff. We have three terrific classes of reps from diverse places and professions.

With the fourth class, we are hoping to strengthen and expand our group geographically and professionally. The single most important factor in selection is the applicant’s ability to clearly identify communities they can serve and plan relevant outreach activities or DPLA-related projects for them. We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated people from the US and the world with great ideas above all else!

To answer general inquiries about what type of work reps normally engage in and to provide information about the program in general, we’re offering an open information and Q&A session with key DPLA staff members and current community reps.

Reps Info Session: Tuesday, February 9, 5:00 PM Eastern
