Dan Cohen, Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America, discusses the DPLA, its organization, programs, and aspirations on the occasion of its first anniversary.
"[T]he DPLA will go beyond its basic mission of making the cultural heritage of America available to all Americans. It will provide opportunities for them to interact with the material and to develop materials of their own. It will empower librarians and reinforce public libraries everywhere . . . ." -- Robert Darnton, NYRB May 22, 2014
