On the Spirit of Creative Exploration at DPLAfest 2015

This guest post was written by Scott W.H. Young, Digital Initiatives Librarian at Montana State University Library and a 2015 DPLA + DLF Cross-Pollinator Travel Grant awardee.

It’s been just about a month now since the conclusion of the second annual DPLAfest in Indianapolis, where about 300 people gathered to discuss the current and future state of digital collections and digital publishing. Those in attendance included librarians, archivists, publishers, authors, developers, and other interested members of the community. My own participation at the conference was generously made possible by a DPLA + DLF Cross-Pollinator Travel Grant, which allowed me share with and learn from DPLA community during the two-day event.
