Note: We've had enormous interest and have reached capacity for the event, so we unfortunately won't be able to accommodate walk-in registrations, and those who have not received registration confirmation from us will be turned away. We encourage participation via our livestream, Twitter, Facebook, and other social tools (hashtag: #dpla), and we will be posting video of the conference online shortly after it takes place.
The first Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) Plenary Meeting, convened by the DPLA Secretariat at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and hosted by The National Archives in Washington, DC, will bring together a wide range of stakeholders in a broad, open forum to present the history of and vision for the DPLA effort, to showcase the best ideas and models submitted to the Beta Sprint (an open call for code and concepts defining how the DPLA should operate), and to create multiple points of entry for public participation in the work of the DPLA.
