David Spadafora, President and Librarian of the Newberry in Chicago, Joining Digital Public Library of America Steering Committee

From an e-Mail Announcement by John Palfrey, DPLA Steering Committee Chairman:

I am writing with the good news that David Spadafora, President and Librarian of the Newberry in Chicago, will be joining the Digital Public Library of America Steering Committee.

The Steering Committee is working to bring together representatives from the educational community, public and research libraries, cultural organizations, state and local government, publishers, authors, and private industry in a series of meetings and workshops to discuss legal, policy, and technical issues surrounding public access to comprehensive online resources. We hope to emerge with a concrete workplan and a governance structure that captures the consensus of representatives of the country’s libraries, universities, archives, and museums for moving forward together with a shared vision.

We are thrilled to welcome David to the team.
