Plenary: "Open Invitations:" closing DLF Forum community session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For 2016, we’ll continue our new tradition of closing the DLF Forum with a discussion-oriented, community-based panel rather than the single vision of a keynote talk. 

"Open Invitations"
You might think of the whole DLF Forum as an open invitation. Invitations to lend your expertise, learn in community, and get involved come from our various, year-round working groups; from teams that present their work at the Forum; from our member institutions and affilated organizations seeking partnerships; and from the grassroots community efforts that spring up within and around the Digital Library Federation. Our closing panelists will make some of those invitations explicit -- and then invite the audience to issue more! How can you join an effort to advance the field? What does your group need to move forward? Come ready to listen, make connections, and make your pitch.
