US National Digital Library expands

Digital collections from North Carolina to be made available through DPLA.

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) was launched in April 2013.

It provides a single point of access for researchers around the world to millions of books, photographs, documents, sound recordings and moving images held in leading libraries and archives across the USA.

The latest addition to the collection comes from The North Carolina Digital Heritage Center (NCDHC) in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Wilson Library, which will become the State hub and conduit to the DPLA.

The NCDHC offers digitisation and digital publishing services to North Carolina’s libraries, archives, museums and historical societies. It has already digitised over 2 million pages. Some of the most frequently viewed items include digitised yearbooks, community newspapers and digitised scrapbooks.
