We are very pleased to welcome and introduce six new members of the DPLA Curation Corps, a group of librarians and other information professionals from around the country who will continue to select and curate the books available in Open eBooks and provide guidance for DPLA’s ongoing work to help maximize access to our collections of ebooks and library ebooks overall.

Selected from a strong group of applicants, the newest Curation Corps members will join returning members to select new content for the Open eBooks app that represent diverse, compelling, and appropriately targeted books for students from elementary to high school.  Member represent a wide range of experiences, serving diverse communities, special education classrooms, and military families. For more on our new and returning members, visit the Curation Corps page.

The Curation Corps will select top content, highlight kid favorites, and help categorize titles to make them more discoverable inside the app to ensure that there is something for every child to read, enjoy, and learn from. Members also provide outreach about the program within their communities via blogs, social media, professional affiliations, and regional presentations.
