Las Vegas, NV

Please join us for the first-ever Learn@DLF!

To cultivate creative training and professional development opportunities stemming from our past three successful DLF Forum Pre-Conferences, we are excited to host Learn@DLF on Sunday, October 14.

Unlike the conference- and unconference-style pre-Forum events of recent years, Learn@DLF 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.

What workshops are being offered?

Thirteen workshops on a variety of subjects are being brought to Learn@DLF by teachers and facilitators from the DLF community. Five tracks will be going throughout the day, but feel free to mix and match. Workshops are either 5 hours, 3 hours, or 2 hours in length.



Open-Source Tools


Advocacy + Info Literacy




Diversity + Access

What will it cost?

Registration will be set at $100, and includes a full day of workshops (build your own schedule!) as well as breakfast, lunch, and copious coffee breaks to fuel your work. Some workshops may require additional books or materials; instructors will contact participants about these in advance of the event.
