Events

Through public conferences, workshops, and participation in related events, the DPLA initiative brings together public and research librarians, authors, publishers, and educators together with interested parties from cultural organizations, state and local government, private industry, and the general public. The connections built through these events are fundamental to our work. We encourage you to join us at our public events and to participate in related conferences and workshops.
