DPLA West—taking place on April 27, 2012 in San Francisco—is the
public event bringing together librarians, technologists, creators,
students, government leaders, and others interested in building a
Digital Public Library of America. Convened by the DPLA Secretariat at
the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and co-hosted by the San
Francisco Public Library, the event will assemble a wide range of
stakeholders in a broad, open forum to facilitate innovation,
collaboration, and connections across the DPLA effort. DPLA West will
also showcase the work of the interim technical development team and
continue to provide opportunities for public participation in the work
of the DPLA.
Registration for DPLA West is required and is free and open to all. We
invite all those interested from the general public, the educational
community, public and research libraries, cultural organizations, state
and local government, the creative community, publishers, and private
industry to join us.
