What is the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)

The question that has most frequently come up in the course of the two-year planning process for the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) has been a very simple one: What is it?

I think we in Denmark could learn a lot from the U.S. process. In any case, in Denmark there are also many who ask about what the Danish Digital Library is?

In Denmark we don't have a simple answer. Although the U.S. American process is more complex because it includes several different libraries and sectors. But in two years they progressed, so I hope we in Denmark can learn from the american proces and how they do in the states. Even though it is two different projects.

Danish Digital Library powered by "TING" - IFLA Annual Conference

The DPLA planning process began, back in October 2010, with agreement on a broad vision statement “an open, distributed network of comprehensive online resources that would draw on the nation’s living heritage from libraries, universities, archives, and museums in order to educate, inform, and empower everyone in current and future generations.”

They are not finish, but they are on the road and close to the goal. See more about (DPLA) and the process
