The DPLA (Digital Public Library of America) was established in October 2010, their purpose is to bring different viewpoints, experiences, and collections together in a single platform and portal, all while providing open and coherent access to our society’s digitized cultural heritage. DPLA has an exciting opportunity to partner with PBS Learning Media to provide greater exposure to content presently available on the DPLA Portal. Our Portal Partners collections information may be used for sharing links to content or putting up web versions of items on the DPLA site like they do with exhibitions. This is all being set up just in time for the new school year and can hopefully be put to use very soon. The Portal to Texas History is honored to be apart of DPLA’s growth.
