USC Libraries contribute to Digital Public Library of America

Apr 26, 2013 10:18 AM

The USC Libraries are contributing content to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), which launched in mid-April.

The DPLA is a free, online portal to all the print books, manuscripts, magazines and digital texts from libraries, archives and museums across the nation. The United States has no national digital library, but more than 40 state digital projects and numerous large content repositories currently operate in the country. The DPLA has chosen seven of those, including the South Carolina Digital Library (SCDL), of which USC is a part, to be pilot hubs.

SCDL brings a collection of historically rich documents, with topics ranging from the Civil War and slavery to the development of the U.S. Park Service. USC Libraries is one of seven collaborating SCDL partners, including Clemson University and South Carolina State Library.
