Cycle 2 Sample Timeline

 

The Digital Public Library of America seeks applicants to serve as Service Hubs in our growing national network.  The application and corresponding instructions are available from the link below.

Service Hub Application

A Service Hub represents a community of institutions to DPLA, provides their partners’ aggregated metadata to DPLA through a single source, and offers tiered services to create a local community of practice.  Service Hubs are geographically based, and DPLA seeks to grow the map of covered states and/or regions by inviting applications through this and future calls for applicants.

The deadline for submission is Monday, July 20, 2015.  Applicants will be notified of their selection on or before August 28, 2015, and will be expected to begin working with DPLA staff immediately following the August announcement to formalize the partnership and begin the process of harvesting metadata.

To answer general inquiries about the application process and to provide information about the hubs network and activities, an open information and Q&A session will be held with key DPLA staff members on June 22 at 4pm eastern.  If you would like to join this webinar, please register ahead of time using the link at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5456060738136592898.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
