The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) 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. Since launching in April 2013, it has aggregated millions of items from thousands of institutions. The DPLA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. You can find out more at http://dp.la/.

This video was originally aired at the first annual DPLAfest, which took place on October 24-25, 2013 in Boston, MA. You can find more video and media from the first DPLAfest at http://dp.la/info/get-involved/events...
