Digital literacy is an area of importance for information professionals, reflected in the emergence of community-serving makerspaces and fabrication labs within library settings. Digital literacy programming often involves unique information needs and potentially burdensome financial, human, and infrastructure challenges. Partnerships are often sought out mitigate these challenges. However, collaboration brings its own set of issues around leadership, coordination, and communication. In this paper, we discuss a collective leadership framework, the foundation for a case study exploring community organizing around digital literacy initiatives. The main conceptual foundations will be highlighted and it will be argued that the framework can contribute understanding to the organizing processes present in multiple stakeholder community collaborations, with implications for the development of essential leadership education and training for LIS professionals.
