The Kentucky Digital Library (KDL) has been invited to participate in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) as one of the first service hub partners in this very early stage of development. We were selected based on the strength of our technological infrastructure and content. The goal of DPLA is to “create a resource that goes well beyond providing simple access to digitized or born digital content,” which will be achieved through developing code, harvesting metadata, incorporating various media types, and offering tools to enhance the use of content. You can read more about the DPLA effort here. The official launch date is set for April 18-19, and they began running a test harvest of KDL materials last week.
