Press: “Q. & A. with DPLA leader John Palfrey on closed meetings, the controversial P Word and other governance issues”

Posted by DPLA on June 24, 2011 in Press.

“We’re indebted to the Digital Public Library of America, hosted by Harvard’s Berkman Center, for raising interest in the national digital library issue.

“At the same time, questions persist on topics ranging from the DPLA’s closed steering committee meetings to the ‘Public’ in the organization’s name. Ahead are replies from DPLA Chair John Palfrey. Thanks, John. I remain open to publishing thoughts from other DPLA committee members in response to the same questions already e-mailed to all members. Separately I’ll soon share further recommendations for the DPLA and Harvard to augment my earlier suggestions.”
