About the Forum
The DLF Forum brings together a wide variety of players in the digital library, museum, and archive fields, from project managers and developers to administrators and service providers. It is an open meeting that welcomes members and others with relevant interests, and provides a strategic platform for organizations to reach a targeted audience. The Forum is collegial, with an emphasis on inclusion and an expectation of trust. We plan to host over 700 attendees at the 2018 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, October 15-17.
DLF has over 150 member institutions — 90+ new in the past several years alone. Take advantage of the rapid growth of this active community and meet digital library, museum, and archive professionals where they come together—the DLF Forum.
Broaden your audience! Several affiliated events are co-located with the Forum including the NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2018, the eResearch Network, workshops, meetups, and more.
Be part of a conversation that extends beyond the three-day Forum and the pre- and post-conference events, via DLF social media (we invite sponsor blog posts and tweets) and the livestream.
