Hi all --

Apologies for cross-posting.

This year’s Digital Library Federation Forum
<> in Milwaukee, WI will again
include a one-day preconference specifically for liberal arts colleges, to
be held on November 6.

The DLF Liberal Arts College Preconference
<> is created for those who
work with digital libraries and/or digital scholarship at liberal arts
colleges. The event is designed to foster conversation and build community,
both formally and informally. Participants do not need to be members of DLF
to attend.

We invite you to shape the preconference by nominating a keynote speaker or
submitting a proposal.

Call for Keynote Speaker

The planning committee is looking to the community to help nominate a
keynote speaker or speakers. The opening session will set the tone of the
preconference, and the planning committee particularly welcomes suggestions
for a speaker (or speakers!) who can explore the intersectionality of
digital library praxis and a liberal arts education. Please send us your
ideas via the following web form <>.

Call for Proposals

We invite proposals for panels, presentations, hands-on workshops,
make-hack-play sessions, and dork shorts that foster conversation,
connections, and provocation at the intersection of digital libraries and
the liberal arts. View the full-length CFP at <>. Proposals are due by May 15 at
11:59 pm Pacific Time.

Not Able to Attend In Person?

On November 6, join the conversation by chiming in using the #dlfLAC
Twitter hashtag. After the preconference, we hope to make recording of
keynote speakers, panels, and presentations available for the community.
