DLF programs stretch year-round, but we are perhaps best known for our signature event, the annual DLF Forum. The DLF Forum welcomes digital library, archives, and museum practitioners from member institutions and beyond—for whom it serves as a meeting place, marketplace, and congress. As a meeting place, the DLF Forum provides an opportunity for our working groups, and community members to conduct their business and present their work. As a marketplace, the Forum provides an opportunity for community members to share experiences and practices with one another and support a broader level of information sharing among professional staff. As a congress, the Forum provides an opportunity for the DLF to continually review and assess its programs and its progress with input from the community at large.

Here, the DLF community celebrates successes, learns from mistakes, sets grassroots agendas, and organizes for action.

The 2023 DLF Forum and affiliated events, including Learn@DLF (pre-conference) and NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2023 will be held at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, MO, November 12-16, 2023.
