DPLA West Comes to a Close

Thanks to all who made this week's events a success!

DPLA West, the second Digital Public Library of America plenary meeting, came to a close this afternoon. Over 300 government leaders, librarians, technologists, makers, students, and others interested in building a national digital library gathered at the Internet Archive in San Francisco, CA today to innovate, collaborate, and connect across the DPLA effort.

We’ll have a full video recording up soon, along with the photos that have already been posted and copies of the wonderful graphic notes taken by our friends at ImageThink. For now, we want to say: many thanks to the fantastic teams at both the San Francisco Public Library and the Internet Archive for hosting us for yesterday’s workstream meetings and today’s events, to the workstream volunteers and the rest of the DPLA community for their ongoing dedication to this effort, and to everyone who participated this week, both in person and online. We look forward to continuing to connect and partner with you as we build the DPLA. More soon!

    I want to say thank you to all of those that made DPLA West a very interesting and fun event. DPLA will change the library world and it is wonderful that everyone was, and is encouraging of ideas and most importantly participation. I had a great time at the Internet Archive and am looking forward to seeing what the DPLA can do. I would even like to be a part of the effort. Thanks.
