Goal

To include Knight-community libraries in the creation of a national digital library network

DPLA is a groundbreaking project that will make our country’s local archives digital, searchable and freely accessible. This project is working towards the day that users will be able to search any topic – be it the Civil War or the New Deal – and immediately pull up information from pictures, videos, oral histories, manuscripts and more from collections across the country. We’re starting with seven pilot sites – with libraries and digital collaborative in Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon, South Carolina and Utah participating as “service” hubs.
