DLF Forum, NDSA Digital Preservation 2020 &
CLIR Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium

This is a reminder that CFPs for the DLF Forum, Learn@DLF,
NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2020, and CLIR’s Digitizing Hidden 
Collections Symposium close on Monday, May 11, at
11:59pm ET.

We know it’s tough for many people to think about next week, let alone
November, and like everyone else we’re keeping a close eye on COVID-19.
But at CLIR, we’re finding it energizing to think ahead to our next
opportunity to gather as a community, and we’re focused on making it a
great (and safe) experience for everyone. We can’t do that without
wonderful proposals from our community for each of our events.

The deadline for all opportunities is Monday, May 11 at 11:59pm Eastern
Time. Please submit here: https://www.conftool.pro/dlf2020

For all events (to be held this year in Baltimore, Maryland), we
encourage proposals from CLIR/DLF members and non-members; conference
veterans and newcomers; digital library practitioners and those in
adjacent fields such as institutional research and educational
technology; and early-career professionals and senior staff alike.
Students, practitioners, and others from any related field are invited
to submit for one conference or all (though, please submit different
proposals for each).

The DLF Forum (#DLFforum, November 9-11), 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. In these respects, the event is a chance for
attendees to conduct business, present work, share experiences,
practices and information, and assess DLF’s programs and progress with
community participation and input. Learn more and check out the CFP
here: https://forum2020.diglib.org/call-for-proposals

Learn@DLF (#LearnAtDLF, November 8) is our dedicated
pre-conference workshop day 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://forum2020.diglib.org/learndlf/

Digital Preservation (#DigiPres20, November 11-12), 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, with the theme Get Active
with Digital Preservation, here:

CLIR’s Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium (#digHC, November 11-12),
is a two-day event for CLIR’s Digitizing Hidden Collections grant
recipients and the wider library and archives communities to celebrate
and reflect on five years of project work. Recipients’ collective
experiences will create opportunities to discuss the current state and
future potential of digitization practice in collecting institutions,
including how the digital cultural record can better reflect the
diversity of human experience, how law and ethics affect strategies for
access, and how technologies and standards can improve discovery and
learning. Learn more and check out the CFP here:

Session options range from 2-minute lighting talk sessions at DigiPres
to half-day workshops at Learn@DLF,  with many
options in between. Not sure where to start? Watch our video with tips
for successful conference proposals (new this year!) here. Looking for
collaborators? Connect with proposal collaborators for sessions and
workshops using our Google sheet.

The deadline for all opportunities is Monday, May 11 at 11:59pm Eastern
Time. Please submit here: https://www.conftool.pro/dlf2020
