History: Virginia and West Virginia: Digital Virginias is Now a DPLA Hub Featuring More than 58,000 Items
From a DPLA Announcement:
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new service hub, Digital Virginias, which offers more than 58,000 items for research and exploration.
Digital Virginias, created by organizations from both Virginia and West Virginia, is the newest hub to join the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
Originally a content hub, the University of Virginia has now joined with regional partners George Mason University, William & Mary, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia University to create a combined set of historical materials for the region. The Virginias were separated into two separate states in 1863, but Digital Virginias is a new representation of the historical and cultural collections that cross state lines. Digital Virginias will also begin to bring in additional regional partners in 2019.
