Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenter: Franky Abbott

Would you like to be able to search one website to access thousands of libraries, archives, and museums? Does your institution digitize content that would benefit from circulation to a broader audience? Do you work with researchers who struggle searching many institutional websites to find online sources relevant to their needs?

This webinar will introduce participants to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), a free, non-profit national digital library that provides access to digital primary and secondary sources from libraries, archives, and museums across the United States. Presenter Franky Abbot will cover how DPLA works, how institutions can contribute content, and how users can employ its resources for a variety of research purposes.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be familiar with DPLA, how it collects content, and what types of content it makes available
  • Be familiar with search tools, exhibitions, education resources, and copyright resources available through DPLA
  • Be able to perform basic searches using DPLA

This webinar will be of interest to: library staff at all types of institutions, archivists, and museum professionals
