New Exhibitions from the Public Library Partnerships Project

By DPLA, September 1, 2015.

We are pleased to announce the publication of 10 new exhibitions created by DPLA Hubs and public librarian participants in our Public Library Partnerships Project (PLPP), funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Over the course of the last six months, curators from Digital Commonwealth, Digital Library of Georgia, Minnesota Digital Library, the Montana Memory Project, and Mountain West Digital Library researched and built these exhibitions to showcase content digitized through PLPP. Through this final phase of the project, public librarians had the opportunity to share their new content, learn exhibition curation skills, explore Omeka for future projects, and contribute to an open peer review process for exhibition drafts.

Congratulations to all of our curators and, in particular, our exhibition organizers: Greta Bahnemann, Jennifer Birnel, Hillary Brady, Anna Fahey-Flynn, Greer Martin, Mandy Mastrovita, Anna Neatrour, Carla Urban, Della Yeager, and Franky Abbott.

Thanks to the following reviewers who participated in our open peer review process: Dale Alger, Cody Allen, Greta Bahnemann, Alexandra Beswick, Jennifer Birnel, Hillary Brady, Wanda Brown, Anne Dalton, Carly Delsigne, Liz Dube, Ted Hathaway, Sarah Hawkins, Jenny Herring, Tammi Jalowiec, Stef Johnson, Greer Martin, Sheila McAlister, Lisa Mecklenberg-Jackson, Tina Monaco, Mary Moore, Anna Neatrour, Michele Poor, Amy Rudersdorf, Beth Safford, Angela Stanley, Kathy Turton, and Carla Urban.
