Digital Public Library of America continues to grow

The DPLA announces major new partnerships.

The Digital Public Library of America has announced six new major partnerships with archives - including the J. Paul Getty Trust.  Meanwhile, existing partner the New York Public Library will be increasing the number of its digital items lent to the DPLA catalogue from 14,000 to over one million.

The DPLA connects the online archives of many US libraries into a single network. Users can search the archives through the digital library's website, and developers can build apps around the DPLA's metadata collection.

New partnerships have been formed with the California Digital Library, the Connecticut Digital Archive, the J. Paul Getty Trust, the US Government Printing Office, Indiana Memory, and the Montana Memory Project.
