The Digital Library Federation (DLF) announces multiple calls for proposals for 2021 virtual events: DLF Forum (November 1-3), NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2021: Embracing Digitality (November 4), and Learn@DLF (November 8-10).
From the call:
Based on community feedback, we’ve made the decision to take our events online again in 2021. We look forward to new and better ways to come together—as always, with community at the center.
Our events will take place on the following dates:
- The DLF Forum (#DLFforum, November 1-3), our signature event, includes digital library practitioners and others from member institutions and the broader community, for whom it serves as a meeting place, marketplace, and congress. Learn more and check out the CFP here: https://forum2021.diglib.org/call-for-proposals/
- NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2021: Embracing Digitality (#DigiPres21, November 4), NDSA’s major meeting and conference, will help to chart future directions for both the NDSA and digital stewardship, and is expected to be a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field. Learn more and check out the CFP for this year’s event here: https://ndsa.org/conference/digital-preservation-2021/cfp/
- Learn@DLF (#LearnAtDLF, November 8-10) is our dedicated workshop series for digging into tools, techniques, workflows, and concepts. Through engaging, hands-on sessions, attendees will gain experience with new tools and resources, exchange ideas, and develop and share expertise with fellow community members. Learn more and check out the CFP here: https://forum2021.diglib.org/call-for-proposals/
For all events, we encourage proposals from members and non-members; regulars and newcomers; digital library practitioners and those in adjacent fields such as institutional research and educational technology; and students, early-career professionals and senior staff alike. Proposals to more than one event are permitted, though please submit different proposals for each.
