This document now applies not only to the Forum and other in-person DLF events, but to our increasingly active work together year-round. It is therefore meant to guide and inspire positive online interaction as well.
We invite you to read our new DLF Code of Conduct
and sign on to the project of making the Digital Library Federation "a welcoming organization and the focal point for a digital library culture
that is anti-oppression, recognizes intersectionalities, and works compassionately across difference." Expressions like these are important because, as we say in the Code, "we know that the best problem-solving and critical thinking happens when people with
a wide array of experiences and perspectives come together to work in comfort and safety as peers."
DLF offers thanks to the many organizations whose work inspired elements of this revision (cited at the bottom of the document), to our dedicated 2016 Forum Inclusivity Committee
Hardesty and Laurie Allen, who jumpstarted the effort), and to the community advisors in our DLF Advisory Committee for their feedback.
