The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world. It strives to contain the full breadth of human expression, from the written word, to works of art and culture, to records of America’s heritage, to the efforts and data of science. The DPLA aims to expand this crucial realm of openly available materials, and make those riches more easily discovered and more widely usable and used.

There is a remarkable new tool for students and anyone interested in, well, just about any topic of American culture, science, and history: the Digital Public Library.

This effort is dedicated to free access for users, and has partnerships with hundreds of libraries, museums, and repositories of digitized materials.
