The following announcement arrived in my inbox this afternoon. Perhaps we can gather virtually on April 19th and look over the DPLA prototype?
Certainly mark you calendars to see what’s unveiled.
We are delighted to announce that on April 18-19, 2013, the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) will bring together librarians, technologists, creators, publishers, innovators, students, government leaders, and others interested in building a national digital library to the Boston Public Library in Boston, MA to celebrate the launch of the DPLA prototype and the conclusion of the two-year planning initiative.
Convened by the DPLA Secretariat at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and co-hosted by the Boston Public Library, the two-day DPLA Launch will include a brief working day on Thursday, April 18th, followed by a formal reception featuring presentations and a series of interactive exhibits showcasing content from our many partners, including the Digital Hubs and Europeana. On Friday, April 19th, the DPLA will convene a focused half-day plenary meeting highlighting the DPLA’s progress and potential.
Registration for the DPLA Launch is free and open to all. We invite all those interested from the general public, the educational community, public and research libraries, cultural organizations, state and local government, the creative community, publishers, and private industry to join us at the launch.
