Launch Time! The Digital Public Library of America Discovery Prototype is Now Live

infoDOCKET would like to congratulate the entire DPLA team on the launch of today’s prototype.

We’re excited to take a look around.

Remember, today’s launch is a prototype/beta.

In other words, there is a lot more work to be done in all areas including technology, content, and maketing/promotion.

Make sure to share with DPLA what you like, don’t like, and what else you would like to see.
