DPLA Receives New Support at Plenary Meeting

During the public Plenary Meeting for the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) at the National Archives and Records Administration on October 21, 2011, a few very exciting announcements were made that will contribute to the foundation and future of the DPLA.

The Sloan Foundation and Arcadia Fund announced a major contribution for the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) in the form of combined $5 million in funding. To top it off, Europeana and the DPLA have reached an agreement to collaborate “in ways that will make a large part of the world’s cultural heritage available to a large part of the world’s population.” This influx of national and international support makes clear the need and enthusiasm for a Digital Public Library of America.
