**Apologies for the cross-posting.**
Have you been thinking carefully over your ideas for this year’s DLF Forum and affiliated events since we announced our Call for Proposals in March, but not yet had a chance to submit? This is the week - time is nearly out! All CFPs close on May 7 at 11:59pm Pacific Time.
Submit today for your chance to participate in our events this fall in Las Vegas:
* our brand-new Learn@DLF<https://forum2018.diglib.org/learnatdlf/> pre-conference (#learnatdlf, October 14);
* the DLF Forum<https://forum2018.diglib.org/call-for-proposals/> (#DLFforum, October 15-17);
* NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2018<http://ndsa.org/meetings/> (#digipres18, October 17-18).
Learn@DLF, our new pre-conference, will be structured entirely as a workshop day. Through engaging, hands-on sessions, attendees will gain experience with new tools and resources, exchange ideas, and develop and share expertise with fellow community members. Learn more and check out the CFP here: https://forum2018.diglib.org/learnatdlf/
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. Anasuya Sengupata<http://sanmathi.org/anasuya/>, co-director and co-founder of Whose Knowledge?,<https://whoseknowledge.org/> will open the 2018 DLF Forum with a talk titled, “Decolonizing Knowledge, Decolonizing the Internet: An Agenda for Collective Action.” Learn more and check out the CFP here: https://forum2018.diglib.org/
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. Snowden Becker<https://snowdenbecker.com/>, lecturer and manager of the graduate degree program in audiovisual archiving and preservation in UCLA’s Department of Information Studies, will open Digital Preservation 2018<http://ndsa.org/meetings/> with a talk titled, “To See Ourselves as Others See Us: On Archives, Visibility, and Value.” Learn more and check out the CFP here: http://ndsa.org/meetings/
Submit for one conference or all three (though, different proposals for each, please)! Session options range from 60-second Minute Madness sessions at DigiPres to daylong workshops at Learn@DLF, with many options in between.
The deadline for all three opportunities is May 7 at 11:59pm Pacific Time.<http://conftool.pro/dlf2018>
