DLF FORUM FELLOWSHIPS FOR LIBRARIANS NEW TO THE PROFESSION
2012 DLF FORUM: Denver, CO
November 4 – November 5, 2012
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: Friday, September 28, 2012.
The Digital Library Federation is pleased to announce our continuation of the DLF Forum Fellowships for Librarians New to the Profession. The purpose of the fellowships is to provide funding for new librarians, staff, and assistants, who are not always routinely funded to travel, to attend the 2012 DLF Forum, where they can learn more about the library profession, see digital initiatives from other institutions, and meet leaders in the profession.
The awards consist of up to $1,000 each to go towards the travel, board, and lodging expenses of attending the 2012 DLF Forum. Additionally, the fellows will each receive complimentary full registration to the Forum. For more information on eligibility and the application process, please see our Forum Fellows page.

The Digital Library Federation is committed to community involvement and input for all of our projects and events, especially the DLF Forums.
There are a lot of exciting projects and ideas in our community right now and we received a great bunch of proposals for the 2012 DLF Forum. We’re asking the DLF community to vote on which sessions you would most like to see on the 2012 DLF Forum schedule.
The Program Planning Committee will use the community votes to guide final program selection and craft a Forum informed by the community’s interests.
Please visit our community poll and cast your votes! Please only one ballot per person.
Thanks for your help in shaping the 2012 DLF Forum schedule.

We would like to thank everyone who volunteered to be a part of the 2012 DLF Forum Program Planning Committee (PPC). We had an incredible number of responses! The PPC slate was determined by several factors including having one person per institution, and a mix of veterans and new members, to represent the DLF community. There will be other opportunities for community members to contribute to the 2012 DLF Forum as we move closer to the event.
