“I am excited to have Michelle join us as we continue to expand our ebook program,” said Dan Cohen, DPLA’s Executive Director. “Her skills both complement and expand upon the strengths of the current DPLA staff, and give us needed expertise in the ebook world, especially her connections with ebook consortia and other ebook projects in the library community.”
