Sponsorship Opportunities

2014 Forum Montage SponsorshipThe 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 500 attendees at the 2016 conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, November 7-9. Please contact Louisa Kwasigroch about sponsorship.

  • DLF has 152 member institutions — nearly 90 new in the past three 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 DLF Liberal Arts Colleges Preconference, NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2016, 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.
