Under the Digital Hubs Pilot Project, launched in late September 2012, the DPLA will undertake the first effort to establish a national network out of the over 40 state or regional digital collaboratives, numerous large content repositories, and other promising initiatives currently in operation throughout the US, bringing together myriad digitized content from across the country into a single access point for end users. The approach is to work with 5-7 states or regions (Service Hubs) and a similar number of large content providers (Content Hubs) to aggregate content on a pilot basis. To learn more about this exciting project, join DPLA Director for Content, Emily Gore, for this session. The DPLA Hubs Pilot Project is funded by NEH, IMLS and the Knight Foundation.
Note: Overflow seating is available for all plenary sessions in the Francis Marion Colonial and Gold Ballrooms.
