“Welcome to Library 2.0. ‘To me,’ director of content Emily Gore said, ‘the goal is to make the treasures of the nation’s libraries, archives and museums available to a broader audience who may not be able to physically travel to all these wonderful places, especially these small museums or historical societies that are contributing through the service hub in their state.’ Gore said most participating institutions have their own digital libraries and appreciate the exposure that DPLA offers them. Links on the DPLA site take visitors to websites of those institutions. As the DPLA’s holdings expand, it will become something of a one-stop reference resource ‘on a global scale,’ Gore said.”

“Creating an open environment for reading and research, all shades of grey of copyright, bringing together libraries, archives and museums and new ways of accessing digital collections. This and much more in this week’s episode of TWIL: your weekly dose of library innovation!”
