The Digital Library Federation (DLF) Forum Keynote Speaker is Kathleen Fitzpatrick. She’s a wonderful writer, speaker, and advocate for academia. Her keynote is one more exciting reason to attend the 2012 DLF Forum in Denver, taking place Nov. 4-5, with pre- and post-conference events running Nov. 2-6. The main events look incredibly useful (and fun) like the panel presentation on “the Landscape of Digital Humanities Librarianship” and there are many more with the full schedule now online.
Those additional events include the Digital Humanities (DH) & Libraries THATCamp on Nov. 3.
For folks considering attending, there are also DLF Forum Fellowships for librarians new to the profession and the deadline for applications is this Friday, September 28.
I won’t be making this year’s DLF Forum, but the week after I’ll be in Puerto Rico for the THATCamp Caribe, Nov. 12-14. I hope to see many folks there and at other conferences throughout the year!
