UVA Library to Join the Digital Public Library of America

The University of Virginia Library is partnering with other prominent institutions to create the Digital Public Library of America, the first national library that provides a single access point for finding digital resources from multiple university libraries as well as federal organizations. The first UVa contribution will be the Holsinger Studio Collection, containing more than ten thousand images of life in Charlottesville at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.  The recent announcement has generated a lot of excitement, as well as news coverage. To read more about the DPLA launch and UVa’s involvement, visit the DPLA website at http://www.dp.la or check out some of the recent press, and be sure to check out the Holsinger images like the one below in the DPLA later this week.
