Description: The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) initiative began in December 2010 with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This ERRT session will provide an overview of the initiative and the first working meeting held at Harvard on March 1st on content and scope issues. We will discuss themes that emerged from the meeting and questions about Europeana as a model for DPLA and possible roles for our Digital Collections and Content project and the inclusion of the aggregation in DPLA.
