Introducing Our First Class of DPLA Community Reps

By DPLA, January 7, 2014.

We are so pleased to announce our first class of DPLA Community Reps–volunteers who engage their local communities by leading DPLA outreach activities. We received an overwhelming response to our call for applicants and were able to admit 100 people into the the first class. Our new Reps hail from 36 states and 2 international countries and work in K-12 education, public libraries, state libraries, municipal archives, public history and museums, publishing, media, genealogy, and many areas of higher education. They submitted many terrific proposals for activities like hackathons, classroom activities, and professional development workshops. We look forward to supporting their creative outreach and engagement work and thank them for helping us grow our DPLA community!

For more detailed information about our Reps and their plans, please visit our Meet the Reps page.
