We were pleased to have Heather Klar and Martha McGinnis represent ImageThink at the Digital Public Library of America October Plenary in Washington,DC The DPLA is ” envisioned as a large-scale digital library that will “make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available, free of charge, to all.”
In May, the DPLA Steering Committee announced a “Beta Sprint” to solicit models, prototypes, tools, and interfaces that demonstrate how the DPLA might index and provide access to a wide range of broadly distributed content. 6 of the most promising projects were presented at the conference and graphic recorded by Heather and Martha.
