Learn more about the event:
  • Registration is now open and programs are available for the 2023 DLF Forum, Learn@DLF, and NDSA’s Digital Preservation in St. Louis, Missouri, this November.
  • DLF Forum Virtual Session recordings are available on YouTube.
  • The DLF GLAM Cross-Pollinator award to attend the 2023 ASIS&T Annual Meeting in London was announced. Reflections from our ER&L and ARLIS/NA Cross-Pollinators are now available on the DLF blog.
  • The DLF Assessment Interest Group’s (AIG) Metadata Working Group published “Five Tips for Rapid Metadata Assessment” on DLF’s blog.
  • The AIG Content Reuse Group hosted the webinar Introducing D-CRAFT: A Toolkit for Assessing Reuse of Digital Objects in Your Collections (recording available at link). Made possible with support from the IMLS, D-CRAFT is a new toolkit that can help digital library practitioners assess reuse of digital objects in their collections. It includes assessment tools, methods, recommended practices, explanatory videos, and tutorials that can help you streamline the reuse assessment process and make it more efficient.
  • The DLF Project Managers Group is hosting two webinars this summer that will focus on project management when working with external partners. An organization’s usual project workflows may need to be revised, changed or documented differently when partnering with external organizations that are not used to working on digitization or digital library projects at any scale. Our panelists will share their experiences working with such partners and we’ll also be sure there is plenty of time for questions and discussion following their short presentations. Register in advance for July 20 and August 14 sessions.
