The DPLA Steering Committee was established in October 2010 to guide efforts toward the creation of a DPLA. This Committee has since grown to a body of 16 non-profit and foundation leaders, government officials, and notable academic and public library directors. In October 2012, the Steering Committee formally passed leadership of the DPLA over to the inaugural Board of Directors. Members of the Steering Committee continue to play an essential role in the DPLA's transition from a planning initiative to an independent non-profit organization, speaking on behalf of the DPLA at public and private engagements, offering advice on strategy, and helping to build the DPLA's growing community of supporters and participants.
