Digital Library Raises $1 Million to Open Online Access

“Both summer reading and serious scholarly research could get a lot easier with the Digital Public Library of America. The visionary project has raised $1 million to help make library materials freely available online to anyone. The open-access digital library plans to use the $1 million award from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to build a single “sky-way with global access ramps” that reaches digital library collections across the nation. The project would also free up resources for local libraries to focus on community needs and activities catering to neighborhood kids and adults.”
