This wiki covers the DPLA Platform Alpha Development. For more current information, go to

DPLA Dev Wiki (Alpha Platform)


The Digital Public Library of America platform will be a set of services to gather metadata about content and collections made accessible through the DPLA and to enable developers to use this metadata to build new applications and and integrate it into existing sites and services. The platform will provide information and services openly and to all without restriction, as per the DPLA’s principles for technical development.

One of the main challenges facing the DPLA is figuring out exactly how this platform will unfold. Tasked with this challenge is the interim Dev Core, a small group of people dedicated to developing the platform, in public and collaboratively.
