3. Digital Library Federation Forum in San Francisco

The next Digital Library Federation Forum will be held in San Francisco on May 4-6. Since SUL is a member of the DLF, we are eligible to attend and there are no fees. Registration forms and other information can be found at:


The registration deadline is April 13. There is an informal cap of 4 attendees from any one member institution, but DLF has already agreed that up to 8 people from Stanford would be fine. I can request more if needed. If you decide to register, please do so directly through the Web site. I would appreciate an e-mail message letting me know also. This is an excellent opportunity to find out about the DLF and various digital library developments, and I hope a number of Stanford people will be able to attend.
