The DLF Forum <http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/> is an annual
meeting where the digital library community comes together to discover
better methods of working through sharing and collaboration. It serves as a
resource and catalyst among digital library developers, project managers,
and all who are invested in digital library issues. The 2015 DLF Forum
<http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/> will be held in Vancouver, BC,
We are currently seeking proposals for the 2015 DLF Forum program. The
Program Planning Committee requests proposals within the broad framework of
digital collections, infrastructure, resources, and organizational
priorities. You do not need to be part of a member organization in order to
submit a proposal.
The Forum traditionally has no overarching theme so that we can craft a
program that speaks to current issues of interest to our community. We
depend on contributors to focus proposals on action-oriented topics
targeted towards a practitioner audience, considering the aspects of
design, management, implementation, assessment, and collaboration.
Suggested topical areas for 2015 include:
Linked data implementations
Collaborative digital projects across GLAM institutions
Innovative approaches to engaging users and reusing data and collections
(e.g., data visualization, mapping, crowdsourcing, citizen science)
Systems architecture, both hardware and code
Open data, open access, or open educational resources
This is not a prescriptive list; we encourage you to be creative,
collaborative, and collegial.
Proposals are due June 22. For more information and to submit your
proposal, please visit http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/cfp/
The call for proposals
the DLF Liberal Arts Colleges Preconference
<http://www.diglib.org/forums/2015forum/affiliated-events/dlflac/> is also
open until June 22.
Please share widely. Apologies for cross-posting.
