What's the DLF?

Networked member institutions and a robust community of practice—advancing research, learning, social justice, and the public good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies.

Find your people, year-round. Grassroots, pragmatic, and mission-driven, DLF is a space where ideas are road-tested and shared strategies and visions emerge.

Get things done. We foster active, open, and welcoming working groups dedicated to building better libraries, museums, and archives for the digital age.
