Check it Out! Digital Public Library of America  (General Meetings)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Basement of the LDS Church, Colville
In the third of our Online Library Series, NeWGS Vice President, Norma Yost, will delve into the wealth of knowledge found at the Digital Public Library of America.  This online library connects researchers to the riches held within many of America’s libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions. All materials found through DPLA—photographs, books, maps, news footage, oral histories, personal letters, museum objects, artwork, government documents, and so much more—are free and immediately available in digital format. Participating cultural institutions represent the richness and diversity of America itself, from the smallest local history museum to our nation’s largest cultural institutions.
 
During this program, Norma will lead us on a journey through DPLAs massive holdings where we will barely touch the surface of the 20,845,365 items available from libraries, archives, and museums.  We will learn how to explore the website ourselves by item, place or date and how to view the many available maps and timelines.  The Digital Public Library of America is undoubtedly a priceless online resource at your fingertips.
