As the Digital Library of Georgia is a partner in the Digital Public Library of America, we want to keep you informed with the latest news about this exciting project. Expect to see regular updates on the DPLA alongside our regularly scheduled programming.
John Palfrey recently gave a TEDx talk about the DPLA entitled “Digital Libraries and Keeping Well in a Digital Age.” Palfrey is Head of School at Phillips Academy, Andover, and President of the DPLA Board of Directors.

Toby Graham, Director of the Digital Library of Georgia (DLG), was interviewed on WGAU’s Newsmakers with Tim Bryant program. The topic of this interview was the DLG’s involvement with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). It is an excellent introduction to the goals of the DPLA, and to the important role that the DLG will play in developing it.
You can listen to a recording of the interview on the WGAU website: http://www.1340wgau.com/s/av/ (it is #111612).
