DPLA Developer Resources
Want to make something awesome? DPLA is a powerful platform that enables new and transformative uses of our digitized cultural heritage. With an application programming interface (API) and freely reusable data, software developers, researchers, and others can use DPLA to create novel environments for learning, tools for discovery, and engaging apps.
DPLA builds and maintains an open API to encourage the independent development of applications, tools, and resources that make use of data contained in the DPLA platform in new and innovative ways, from anywhere at anytime. We welcome contributions from interested developers who would like to build applications or tools using our API or a bulk download of our dataset. For those who’d like to poke around, the code powering the DPLA portal and the rest of our infrastructure is available on GitHub.
