Press: “Update on the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)”
Posted by DPLA in July 11, 2011.
“Since we’ve discussed this exciting initiative in the past, I thought I’d update readers of this blog on the status of the Digital Public Library of America. Based at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, the DPLA aims, as its name suggests, to be a public, digital library. Originally conceived as an alternative to Google’s private digital library, the DPLA took on greater significance when Google’s exclusive deal with publishers and authors of out-of-print works was rejected by a federal court earlier this year.”
