Dispatches from Midwinter – Digital Public Library of America Update

Preparing for an April 18th launch, the Digital Public Library of America was present at the 2013 ALA Midwinter meeting to present some of the updates on its project. If you’ve never heard of DPLA, it is a digitization project that plans to create a national digital library where patrons can access materials from across the nation in a digital format. Whereas many libraries and organizations already have an existing digitization project, DPLA is a project that plans to centralize and streamline the process of digitization for the parties that might not already be involved.
