The Digital Public Library of America

A collaborative effort led by a range of organizations, including the Library of Congress, HathiTrust, and the Internet Archive, have created a repository that provides books, images, historic records, and audiovisual materials to anyone with Internet access.  Although many universities, public libraries, and other organizations have digitized materials, often times these collections are only available to a small subset of people.  The Digital Public Library of America brings together all of these collections into a single platform, providing access for everyone.
