Digital Public Library of America -- 1st Plenary Meeting, 21 October, National Archives (DC)


The first Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Plenary Meeting, convened by the DPLA Secretariat at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and hosted by The National Archives in Washington, DC, will bring together a wide range of stakeholders in a broad, open forum to present the history of and vision for the DPLA effort, to showcase the best ideas and models submitted to the Beta Sprint (an open call for code and concepts defining how the DPLA should operate), and to create multiple points of entry for public participation in the work of the DPLA.

Registration for the DPLA Plenary Meeting is free and open to all. 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 are invited to join the plenary meeting.

The hope is to bring together a broad and diverse mix of participants, both individually and institutionally. Space at the plenary meeting is limited and there will be participation online via webcasts and social tools. Please register only if you are able to attend the entire event.
