Press: DPLA included in TIME’s 50 Best Websites 2013

We’re pleased to announce that the DPLA was chosen as one of TIME Magazine‘s top 50 best websites of 2013.

“The next time you’re temped to waste ten minutes looking at an online slideshow of cat pictures, point your browser at the Digital Public Library of America instead. Drawing on documents, photos and other items from the country’s libraries, museums and archives, it features fascinating virtual exhibits on topics such as Prohibition and Boston’s sports temples. You can also peruse almost 2.4 million artifacts via search and timeline and map views.”
