Newly Launched Resource: Introducing texas.dp.la – a Digital Public Library of America TxHub Site
As many of you are aware, TxHub is the DPLA Service Hub of Texas, providing metadata for thousands of cultural heritage items to the Digital Public Library of America. DPLA makes those items, and millions of others across the country through the web portal and its open API.
The newly launched TxHub site at https://texas.dp.la/ makes digital photos, maps, books, artifacts, oral histories and more from libraries, archives, museums, and historical societies across the state freely available through a single site. Every time one of TDL’s DPLA Aggregation Service members shares their metadata, it will be included in this collection. You can find citations for the members’ images you see on the header for the site here.
