DLF programs stretch year-round, but we are perhaps best known for our signature event, the annual DLF Forum. Our DLF Forum includes digital library practitioners from member institutions and the broader community, for whom it serves as a meeting place, marketplace, and congress.
SAVE THE DATE: The 2017 DLF Forum and allied events (including a DLF liberal arts colleges/HBCU Library Alliance pre-conference and NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2017) will be held 22 – 26 October, in Pittsburgh, PA at the Westin Convention Center!
The Digital Library Federation (DLF) is committed to creating and supporting inclusive, diverse, and equitable communities of practice. We strive to be a welcoming organization and the focal point for a digital library culture that is anti-oppression, recognizes intersectionalities, and works compassionately across difference. Together, DLF members advance research, learning, social justice, and the public good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies. We know that the best problem-solving and critical thinking happens when people with a wide array of experiences and perspectives come together to work in comfort and safety as peers. We therefore expect participants in the DLF community to help create thoughtful and respectful environments where that interaction can take place.
Please review our code of conduct here.
The 2017 DLF Forum and pre-conference are community and practitioner-based events that would not be possible without thoughtful and engaged participation from our community.
We’d like to give a heartfelt thanks to our over 100 planning committee members for the DLF Forum, the LAC/HBCUs Preconference, and NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2017: “Preservation is Political” as well as to our generous sponsors.
