The Digital Public Library Of America: Promoting Cultural Preservation

The Digital Public Library Of America: Promoting Cultural Preservation | Academic and Research Libraries | Scoop.it

Do you have fond memories of going to your local library to do research on a school assignment? Or just to pass the time, browsing through old books, photo archives and other fascinating materials?

 

You can explore similar (or in some cases, the very same) archives online without leaving the house, thanks to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). The DPLA is an extensive and entirely free online collection of books, photographs, manuscripts, moving images, and other quality content from a network of libraries, museums, archives, and institutions across the United States.

 

According to The Atlantic, the DPLA is the result over two years’ work on the part of 42 of the nation’s top libraries and research organizations. Its website features scanned and otherwise digitized materials from such content hubs as the Smithsonian, the New York Public Library, Harvard, the National Archives, and the University of Virginia, just to name a few. It also brings content from digital libraries across America — including the Digital Library of Georgia, Minnesota Digital Library, and Mountain West Digital Library — into one point of access for users.
