2016 DLF Forum: Milwaukee

DLF Forum image

The 2016 DLF Forum was held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from 7-9 November. We also welcomed participants in a second DLF Liberal Arts Colleges Pre-Conference, held on 6 November and in Digital Preservation 2016 (9-10 November), held for the first time in conjunction with the Forum as part of NDSA’s move to DLF.

The full program is available to browse, and participants are now adding their presentations to our conference repository!

The Forum was held at the historic Pfister Hotel, just blocks from Lake Michigan, the Milwaukee Art Museum, dining destinations, and nightlife. The hotel has an incredible Victorian art collection, an artist-in-residence program, and a spa. Our local hosts were the Marquette University Raynor Memorial LibrariesUniversity of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries.

You can stay informed of all the news on future DLF conferences by subscribing to our Forum mailing list, joining the DLF listserv, “liking” us on Facebook, or following us at @CLIRDLF on Twitter.

Meanwhile, save the date for Pittsburgh!

We look forward to seeing you October 23-25, 2017.

A call for participation in Forum planning committees and new sponsorship opportunities for the 2017 DLF Forum will be available soon.
