The Digital Library Federation (DLF) Forum includes digital library practitioners from member institutions and the broader community, for whom it serves as a meeting place, marketplace, and congress. As a meeting place, the DLF Forum provides an opportunity for our Advisory Committee, 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.
The 2021 DLF Forum annual meeting is scheduled to take place between November 7-11 in St. Louis, MO at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel. The Council on Library and Information Resources (DLF's parent organization) continues to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and after successfully pivoting to a virtual format for 2020, will be making a call on this for 2021 by early spring 2021.
