About the Forum

The Digital Library Federation Forum brings together a wide variety of players in the digital library environment, from project managers and developers, to administrators and service providers, and focuses on the operational layer of digital libraries. This conference is well known for its community building and strong emphasis on sharing ideas, collaboration, and best practices work. The DLF Forum is an open meeting, welcoming both DLF members and others who work in the field, and provides a strategic platform for organizations to reach a broad, relevant audience. We anticipate hosting 250+ attendees at the 2013 Forum, November 4-6, 2013 in Austin, TX. To sponsor the DLF Forum, please contact Louisa Kwasigroch at lkwasigroch [at] clir.org or 202-939-4758 by September 1.
