[October 24-25, 2013] DPLAfest 2013
On October 24-25, 2013 the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) brought together hundreds of librarians, archivists, and museum professionals, developers and technologists, publishers and authors, teachers and students, and many others to Boston, MA to celebrate the DPLA’s successful April 2013 launch, its recent milestones, and its future at the first DPLAfest.
DPLAfest 2013 — a two-day series of events free and open to the public — included a reception at the Boston Public Library on the evening of Thursday, October 24 (the reception had been originally planned for April 18, 2013, but was postponed in light of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings on April 15). On Friday, October 25, participants gathered at Northeastern University and Simmons College for a full day of workshops, discussions, and other hands-on activities.
The DPLA was proud to co-host DPLAfest 2013 with the Boston Public Library, Northeastern University’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities, and Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science.
