Press: “Unequal Access”

From Karen Coyle: “It occurs to me as I write this that the ‘Digital Public Library of America’ could create an information revolution in this country by upgrading the access of the general public to that of an academic or student in a large college or university, without ever digitizing a single page.”


Press: “Maura Marx: A Renaissance Woman in the Digital Stacks”

“As the executive director of the Open Knowledge Commons, Marx is currently working with a wide assortment of library professionals, computer experts, authors, publishers, educators, government representatives, private industry, cultural organizations, and others as they pull the Digital Public Library of America into being.”


Press: “A Conference Even a Curmudgeon Enjoyed”

From Bob Berring: “But on June 16, 2011, The Future of Law Libraries Conference at the Harvard Law School gave me new hope. John Palfrey and his staff, with special nods to Meg Kribble, put on a stimulating, provocative and, well, classy event.”


Press: “Update on the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)”

Press: “DPLA and its larger promise…”

From David Curry: “Over the last several months, we have been following the spirited DPLA listserve discussion on what a “Digital Public Library of America” might strive to become (and what it might presume to preclude).”


Press: “DPLA steering committee still secretive, as shown by LibraryCity’s survey of SC members of Harvard-hosted digital library initiative”

From David Rothman: “I’m dismayed that Harvard so far is tolerating the DPLA’s secrecy, especially when DPLA committee member Carl Malamud has beaten the drums again and again for government openness and was an Internet broadcasting pioneer.”


Press: “What might the DPLA end up being?”

John Palfrey’s June 30, 2011 video update on the DPLA’s progress is embedded in this blog entry.


Press: “Q. & A. with DPLA leader John Palfrey on closed meetings, the controversial P Word and other governance issues”
