2017 Online Conference

Can’t get to Austin for D4D 2017? Join us online!

Collect up your colleagues and have a D4D viewing party or watch the 30+ sessions from your offices or at home on idevices during D4D or long after–with no pressure to watch on April 3-5, 2017 with online platform access for a full year!

Multiple campuses across the world are participating in D4D with the Online Conference Group Rate. Some are sharing access with library staff and students; others are holding virtual D4D conference viewing parties.

We are very excited to announce that once again, the online conference platform will include all peer-reviewed, community-voted sessions. See which sessions will steam live here.

Q: How do I access the online conference?

A: Login and password credentials will be provided 2-3 weeks prior to the conference. The online conference can be watched online via your browser. No special hardware is necessary.
