The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is an initiative that has brought together “leading experts in libraries, technology, law, and education” to develop a “realistic and detailed workplan” for launching “the first concrete steps toward the realization of a large-scale digital public library that will make the cultural and scientific record available to all.” (see dp.la for more information about the project)
This session will offer an opportunity to get caught up on the latest DPLA developments from DPLA Workstreams.
As a former member of the DLF DPLA Beta Sprint and IMLS Digital Collections and Content Project, I am able to lead a variety of discussions about DPLA. We also hope that Emily Gore, member of the Technical Aspects Workstream, will be able to join us.
In the spirit of an un-conference, this post is also a call for your comments. What do you want to know about DPLA? Are you working on a DPLA project? Want to know what DPLA means for your collections? What
does should a DPLA mean for academic and public humanities scholars? Join us!
