Featured Online Resource - Digital Public Library of America



http://dp.la

This week’s Featured Online Resource is the Digital Public Library of America (http://dp.la). The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is an all-digital library that provides information about items available from many different libraries, archives, and museums around the US. It also provides the thumbnails for millions of photographs, manuscripts, books, sounds, and moving images. You can browse by timeline or by subject. Although the library only links to resources that are available, it will provide users with information that might be found in different libraries across the country.

The DPLA also offers online exhibits of materials that can be found in different libraries across the US. This month's new online exhibit is "The Golden Age of Radio in the US". 

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
