New Document Shares Key Takeaways From DPLA Midwest in Chicago

From the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Website:

On October 11, 2012, the six DPLA Workstreams, the Steering Committee, and the Board of Directors, along with members of the public, met in a series of breakout sessions and working groups during DPLA Midwest at the Chicago Public Library’s Harold Washington Center to discuss the development of both the DPLA platform and the front-end user interface, the establishment of the DPLA as an independent non-profit organization, and the launch of the DPLA’s Digital Hubs Pilot Project, among other topics.

The goal of these meetings was to chart out agenda items for the next six months of work and beyond, as well as to provide a forum for participants and members of the public to share updates and ideas with one another.

The following document is also available direct from DPLA.
