DPLA Releases Enhanced Version of Mueller Report

From the Digital Public Library of America:

On May 21, DPLA announced the release of its ebook of Report On The Investigation Into Russian Interference In The 2016 Presidential Election, or the Mueller Report, available for free as an EPUB file from DPLA’s website and on the Open Bookshelf collection within the SimplyE app. The previous DPLA edition has already been downloaded more than 40,000 times.

Today DPLA is proud to release a better version of the report with improvements including links to more than 750 of the original documents referenced in footnotes and format and tagging enhancements to make the document more accessible to those with text impairments.

To create this enhanced version, DPLA collaborated with the Internet Archive and MuckRock, who provided the links to the footnotes. We discovered that Bill Kasdorf and Thad McIlroy at Publishing Technology Partners had initiated work on a more accessible version and we joined forces. codeMantra implemented the accessibility improvements,  and Digital Divide Data provided production support.
