The City of Liberty and Liberated Data

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.

Although we’re a digital project, we obviously consist of human beings with a distinctly non-virtual existence, and we are very lucky to have a daily presence in the first municipal public library in America, the Boston Public Library.

State of the DPLA’s Collections: Tracking our Growth

A post from Amy Rudersdorf, DPLA Assistant Director for Content

We thought the DPLA community might be interested in a few stats we’ve gathered about our partners and their collections at the six-month mark. We’re still building, growing, and testing, but the numbers give some insight into where we’re content-rich and where we might consider focusing our development efforts.
