Registration for the 2016 DLF Forum, DLF’s Liberal Arts Colleges Pre-Conference, and NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2016 is open! Don’t miss your chance to register now.

With events spanning November 6-10 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this will be the first DLF Forum and LAC Pre-Conference held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the National Digital Stewardship Alliance, an organization DLF now sponsors and hosts. Come for the #DLFforum and stay for #digipres16!

DLF’s second Liberal Arts Colleges Pre-Conference (#dlfLAC) will be held on November 6, and we are offering limited places in an Ally Skills workshop after the close of the Forum and before Digital Preservation 2016 begins on November 9th. Stay tuned for news of additional affiliated events, such as the 2016 Taiga Forum, and further announcements of exciting keynote speakers and plenary panels.

The DLF is a robust and diverse community of practitioners who advance research, learning, social justice, and the public good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies. Our 2015 DLF Forum in Vancouver set new records for attendance and number of high-quality presentations, sparked collaborative projects, launched new DLF working groups, and catalyzed important conversations that have continued throughout the year.  We are excited to see what the 2016 Forum brings!

For updates, join the listserv or sign up for the Forum mailing list.  Please keep in mind that registration slots go very quickly every year. Save your place!
