In an email to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) mailing list, Palfrey and Doron Weber from the DPLA Steering Committee, let us know that Palfrey will continue to chair the DPLA’s steering committee.
From the DPLA E-Mail:
[Palfrey’s] agreement with Andover includes a written commitment to continuing to chair the DPLA’s steering committee and supporting the work of our initiative through the Berkman Center’s secretariat. DPLA will be adding a further sensibility toward K-12 issues to the project through John’s change in day-job, which will take effect next summer (July, 2012). Please feel free to contact either of us if you have any questions. We look forward to continuing to work with all of you toward this important public-spirited goal.
Congratulations to John Palfrey!
