Digital Library Initiatives: Digital Public Library of America
 

So, today I attended, listened, or watched the a webinar, Digital Library Initiatives: Digital Public Library of America: Technologies and Trends sponsored by the Southeastern New York Library Resources Council (SENYLRC). I can recall just two years ago when one of my former professor was against shared metadata standards much in the same vain as the now current European metadata joint standards like Asset Description Metadata Schema. Now, such councils or cooperatives as DPLA are amassing together union alliances with standards being drawn up to allow data sharing reminiscent of the union catalog record sharing that we see today. The difference is these repositories are not sharing complete content, but previews.


The webinar featured an introduction and description of where metadata sharing is going in the United States. Hosted by Emily Gore, DPLA Director for Content, the webinar featured an overview of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), including past and up and coming endeavors.  Ms. Gore discussed the DPLA organization and community, the upcoming April 2013 initial launch of the DPLA, and the Digital Hubs Pilot Project.  I, myself, was more interested in the elements of their metadata schema than examples of collaborative efforts that have already sprang up because of this initiative. As such, I thoroughly enjoyed webinar. Specifically, it was nice to attend such a webinar that was not bogged down in the issues of copyright and focused more on the end results of innovation. I will hopefully post a link to the webinar or it’s slides at a later date http://dp.la/about/elements-of-the-dpla/.
