About the Forum

DLF programs stretch year-round, but we are perhaps best known for our signature event, the annual DLF Forum. The DLF Forum welcomes digital library, archives, and museum practitioners from member institutions and beyond—for whom it serves as an essential meeting-place. Here, the DLF community celebrates successes, learns from mistakes, sets grassroots agendas, and organizes for action.

Save the Date

The 2018 DLF Forum and allied events—including Learn@DLF, a pre-conference workshop day, and NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2018will be held October 14-18 at the beautiful M Resortjust outside Las Vegas, NV

Code of Conduct

The Digital Library Federation (DLF) is committed to creating and supporting inclusive, diverse, and equitable communities of practice. We strive to be a welcoming organization and the focal point for a digital library culture that is anti-oppression, recognizes intersectionalities, and works compassionately across difference. Together, DLF members advance research, learning, social justice, and the public good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies. 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.

We therefore expect participants in the DLF community to help create thoughtful and respectful environments where that interaction can take place. 

Please review our DLF Code of Conduct prior to joining us at the Forum.



Thank You

The 2018 DLF Forum and Learn@DLF are community and practitioner-based events that would not be possible without thoughtful and engaged participation from our community. 

We’d like to give a heartfelt thanks to our planning committee members for the DLF Forum, Learn@DLF, and NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2018 as well as to our generous sponsors
