After the DLF Forum wraps up, enjoy a free tour at Washington University in St. Louis’s John M. Olin Library. Meet in the hotel lobby at 1:50pm for a 2pm departure, tour begins on campus at 3pm. Tour leader Walter Schlect will help attendees get from the hotel to campus. RSVP to forum@diglib.org if you plan to attend. Space is limited to 15 participants.

The tour will last approximately one hour and will visit the Library’s Data Services Department, highlights from the Department of Special Collections, and the current special exhibitions.
  • Stop 1: Olin Library’s Data Services Department – overview of equipment with a specific focus on the 3D imaging they have been doing. Here is information about the project to be highlighted.
  • Stop 2: Highlights from Olin’s Department of Special Collections, including a variety of materials across their 7 collecting areas: Rare Books, Modern Literature, Illustration, Film & Media, Local History, Sports and Culture, and University Archives. Olin’s Digitization Manager will also be available during this time to discuss particularly challenging or interesting digitization projects he’s overseen with these collections. 
  • Stop 3: Tour of Library Exhibitions – this would just be a brief overview of the different spaces and then attendees are free to spend as much time as desired viewing the materials – or returning to the library on their own to spend more time viewing them. Here is the info on Wash U's current and upcoming exhibitions.
