2020 DLF Forum Will Transition to Virtual Format

Based on the overwhelming responses to the DLF community survey, the number and distribution of proposals for all CFPs, and CLIR’s ongoing monitoring of the pandemic situation, it has become clear that for the health and safety of our attendees and presenters, we must transition all of our fall events to a virtual format. We are sorry we won’t be able to explore Baltimore in 2020, but we’re already making arrangements to hold our 2022 events there, so we’ll just have to wait a bit longer to enjoy time together in Charm City.

What does this mean for 2020? We are not entirely sure yet, but we would love your input. We are happy to share this second community survey about virtual events in which we ask for your thoughts on what you’d like to see from a virtual CLIR/DLF event or series of events this fall. We would appreciate your input by Monday, June 1.

We understand that you may have questions, and while we may not have the answers just yet, we welcome the dialog with you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at forum@diglib.org, and thank you so much for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time. Stay healthy and safe, and we’ll be in touch with more soon.
