The Digital Public Library Launches with 2.4 Million Records

“The Digital Public Library of America went live in April, and it provides one more online resource for those looking to do historical research. It is not the first such digital resource, nor will it be the last, but it provides one more place where we can look to find information that a few years ago would have been beyond reach, buried in the archives of countless institutions. Now, just a little over two years after this plan was hatched, 2.4 million new/old records are available to the public at a click of a mouse. And, that number will grow.”

From Michael Stillman’s article in the June 2013 Americana Exchange Monthly, The Digital Public Library Launches with 2.4 Million Records
