The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), currently based at the Berkman
Center for Internet &

Society at Harvard University but moving to a permanent location by spring
2013, is an ambitious projectto make the cultural and
scientific heritage of humanity available, free of charge, to all. By adhering
to thefundamental principle of free and universal access to
knowledge, it will promote education in the broadestsense
of the term. That is, it will function as an online library for students of
all ages, from grades K-12 topostdoctoral researchers and
anyone seeking self-instruction; it will be a deep resource for
communitycolleges, vocational schools, colleges and
universities; it will supplement the services of public
librariesin every corner of the country; and it will
satisfy other needs as well--the need for data related
toemployment, for practical information of all kinds, and
for enrichment in the use of leisure.

  
**Content Division**  
The first major effort to add content to the DPLA is underway through the
Digital Hubs Pilot Project,funded by NEH, IMLS and the
Knight Foundation. The object of the Hubs Project is to strengthen
andconnect existing state infrastructure to create a system
of Service Hubs from which aggregated data fromlibraries,
museums, historical societies and archives are harvested. Each Service Hub
will offer a fullmenu of standardized digital services to
local institutions, including digitization, metadata
consultation,data aggregation and storage services, as well
as locally hosted community outreach programs bringingusers
in contact with digital content of local relevance. Service Hubs will serve as
an on-ramp for everyinstitution in a pilot state or region
to participate in the DPLA network.In addition to Service
Hubs, Content Hubs are those existing large digital libraries that will have a
one-toone relationship with the DPLA. Large digital content producers like the
National Archives and RecordsAdministration (NARA),
Harvard, and others will work with the DPLA directly to identify and
preparetheir collections for aggregation by the DPLA.
Content Hubs that will participate in the initial launch
ofthe DPLA are currently being identified with anticipation
of many more to follow.
