This is the second in a new series of behind-the-scenes posts from DPLA staffers. We hope that these posts will give you additional insight into what we’re working on, how we work, and progress toward our goals.
I just returned from several days in Philadelphia where I attended the American Library Association Midwinter conference. About 7,000 folks attended Midwinter, but that’s nothing compared to ALA Annual, which typically brings upwards of 30,000 people together to think and talk about libraries, open access, privacy, maker spaces, technology, and information provision and consumption. Always fascinating, the Philly conference was no different.
