Our new volunteers are managed by Brianna Furcron, DPLA Curation Corps Team Leader and former Special Collections Librarian at the State of Arizona Research Library and Archives, under the direction of Micah May, our Director of Ebooks.
DPLA’s ebook work is supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
