Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) in Indiana Workshop

                DPLA is a national digital library of cultural heritage content from across the US, fed into the portal by Hubs throughout the nation.  Representatives from cultural heritage institutions across the state have collaborated to create such a Hub in Indiana. The work of the Hub’s supporters will boost representation of Indiana’s heritage and history in DPLA as well as provide digital library services and outreach to Indiana libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, and beyond.
                This workshop will:

1) Share information about DPLA efforts underway in Indiana

2) Describe how your institution may contribute content and

3) Facilitate group brainstorming regarding the services needed/desired in Indiana to support digitization and enhancement of already digital cultural heritage content.
