Calls for Proposals for 2022 CLIR Events are Now Live

CLIR/DLF is delighted to share our Calls for Proposals for CLIR’s 2022 events, happening in person in Baltimore, Maryland.

Our events will take place on the following dates:

    • The DLF Forum (#DLFforum, October 10-12), 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. This year, the Forum’s guiding focus is gratitude. Learn more and check out the CFP here.
    • Learn@DLF (#LearnAtDLF, October 9) is our 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. The CFP for Learn@DLF is incorporated with the Forum’s and can be found here. 
    • NDSA’s Digital Preservation 2022: Preserving Legacy (#DigiPres22, October 12-13), 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 here.
  • CLIR’s Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium (#digHC, October 12-13), 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. Learn more and check out the CFP here.

For all events, we encourage proposals from members and non-members; regulars and newcomers; digital library practitioners and those in adjacent fields such as institutional research and educational technology; and students, early-career professionals and senior staff alike. We especially welcome proposals from folks who can bring diverse professional and life experiences to the conference, including those from minority racial, ethnic, or religious backgrounds, immigrants, veterans, those with disabilities, and people of all sexual orientations or gender identities.   

Session options range from 5-minute lighting talks at the Forum to half-day workshops at Learn@DLF, with many options in between.

The deadline for all opportunities is Monday, April 25, at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
