DLF Forums convene twice a year and includes digital library practitioners from member institutions. It serves as a meeting place, a market place, and a congress. As a meeting place it provides an opportunity for DLF initiatives to conduct their business and to present their work to the broader membership. As a market place, it provides an opportunity for practitioners to share experiences and practices with one another and to support a broad level of information-sharing between professional staff. As a congress, it provides an opportunity for the DLF to review and assess its programs and its progress with input from the broader membership community.
