Within a very short period of time, the Digital Public Library of America has become an important institution and infrastructure for discovering and working with materials in libraries, archives, and museums. As a portal, platform, and public option for access, DPLA creates exciting opportunities for innovative teaching, learning, and research within academic institutions. DPLA staff and Community Representatives will facilitate a discussion about DPLA’s unique contributions to academic libraries and librarians.
