It’s official! The Smithsonian Institution is partnering with the Digital Public Library of America. The Smithsonian, like the National Archives and Records Administration, will be a “content hub” for the DPLA - providing metadata that will allow the DPLA to search and link to our online collections.
Not to brag (much) but the Smithsonian Libraries’ director, Nancy Gwinn, was instrumental in making this partnership a reality and Assoc. Director Martin Kalfatovic is one of the DPLA technical workstream co-chairs. Pictured above on the DPLA website is library book scanner extraordinaire Stefaan Hurts.
