UMass Amherst Librarian Receives Digital Library Federation & Kress Cross-Pollinator Award


The UMass Amherst Libraries are pleased to announce that Annie Sollinger, Digital Image Metadata Librarian, has been selected as a winner of this year’s Digital Library Federation (DLF) & Kress Cross-Pollinator Awards.

A member of the Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Center (formerly the Image Collection Library), Sollinger works closely with the Department of the History of Art and Architecture in particular to provide quality digital images, metadata, and research support. She states, “As we add to our traditional visual resources work, I am excited about building new services that are accessible and equitable from the ground up.”

The Kress Cross-Pollinator Awards bring in awardees from non-DLF members who belong to other cultural organizations. These awards provide a travel fellowship to the annual DLF Forum, serving as a meeting place, marketplace, and congress for digital library practitioners from member institutions and the broader community. This year, the Forum will be held in Pittsburgh on October 23-25.
