DLF Events

The DLF Forum

Forum montage
We’re perhaps best known for our signature event, the annual DLF Forum. The latest DLF Forum was held in October 2017, in Pittsburgh, PA. A record of past Forums is available.


Our 2018 DLF Forum and allied events (including NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2018) will be held October 14-18, in Las Vegas, Nevada!
