Digital Public Library of America Celebrates Its First Birthday

By Africa S. Hands

From DPLA:

This week marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Digital Public Library of America (http://dp.la), a groundbreaking all-digital library that brings together millions of items from America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world. In celebration, DPLA is proud to announce the addition of six major new partners and other significant milestones that attest to the tremendous momentum the project has as it enters its second year.

As DPLA moves into its second year of operation, we are delighted to announce that six major new partners — California Digital Library, Connecticut Digital Archive, U.S. Government Printing Office, Indiana Memory, Montana Memory Project, and The J. Paul Getty Trust — will participate as Content Hubs or statewide Service Hubs, or will be joining an existing Service Hub. All will help to greatly expand DPLA’s offerings from their respective regions, contributing numerous new items to DPLA and bolstering the library’s distributed national infrastructure.
