The DLF Forum, our signature event, includes digital library practitioners from member institutions and the broader community, for whom it serves as a meeting place, marketplace, and congress. In these respects, the event is an opportunity for attendees to conduct business, present work, share experiences and practices, support information sharing, and assess DLF’s programs and progress with community input.

And, to round out the week, NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2018: In/visible Work, will help to chart future directions for both the National Digital Stewardship Alliance and digital stewardship, and is expected to be a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field.

You’ll join guests like Anasuya Sengupta<http://sanmathi.org/anasuya/>, our Forum keynote speaker, who will present her talk, “Decolonizing Knowledge, Decolonizing the Internet: an agenda for collective action.” Stay for DigiPres and hear Snowden Becker<https://snowdenbecker.com/> deliver her keynote, “To See Ourselves as Others See Us: On Archives, Visibility, and Value.”
Our full program will be released in the coming weeks, but to get a taste of what will be on the docket, check out our community voting<https://www.diglib.org/community-voting-for-the-dlf-forum-learndlf-and-digital-preservation-2018/> on the proposals that were submitted - and while you’re there, help form the program by submitting a vote or two! Program planning committees for each event will use the community’s input, in combination with results from a concurrent peer review process, to inform its decisions about the conference programs.
Registration is not yet open for Learn@DLF<https://forum2018.diglib.org/learnatdlf/>, which takes place on the pre-conference day, October 14! Let us know on the registration form if you’d like more information, and we’ll be sure to email you when it is possible to register.
