In today’s digital world, geographic location is no longer a barrier to gather information. Users don’t need to travel to physical libraries, archives, or museums to gain access to their collections. Launched in collaboration with the Berkman Center, the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) has transformed the delivery and access to these institution’s incredible resources and artifacts. Researchers, teachers, scholars, students and the public at large can now engage with an online portal that puts these educational assets at their fingertips. Join us for an exploration of how libraries are drawing on their past and using technology to create new resources for scholarship and education.
This event is hosted by Harvard University as part of #HUBweek.
