Been through the scholarly literature available from the library’s eCollections?  Need just a couple more primary sources to bring your paper to full bloom?


Consider the Digital Public Library of America.


Launched just a year ago in April 2013, the  Digital Public Library of America serves as an aggregator to digital content provided by over 1,000 Memory Institutions.  The DPLA aggregates over 5 million items, including content from the digital repositories of the Smithsonian, the New York Public Library, the National Archives, and Harvard University.


Curious?  Read more in this Library Journal article by John Palfrey, chair of the DPLA steering committee and current Head of School at Phillips Andover.
