Digital Public Library of America

Digital Public Library of America will launch on April 18

La Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), que pretende ofrecer online los archivos de todas las bibliotecas y museos norteamericanos, estará disponible el próximo día 18 de abril.

To make it work, we must think big and begin small. At first, the DPLA’s offering will be limited to a rich variety of collections—books, manuscripts, and works of art—that have already been digitized in cultural institutions throughout the country. Around this core it will grow, gradually accumulating material of all kinds until it will function as a national digital library.

Además estará conectada con Europeana, la iniciativa Europea con el mismo objetivo lanzada hace algunos años.
