Seven pilot sites join national digital library project with Knight Foundation funding

“The Digital Public Library of America—a groundbreaking project that will make content in our nation’s archives and special collections digital, searchable and freely available—will launch pilot projects in seven states with $1 million in funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. State libraries and regional digital library collaboratives in Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon, South Carolina, and Utah will be the first to participate as “service” hubs in the pilot effort. Users ultimately will be able to search across these local collections, finding information on a topic—like the Civil War or the Great Depression—via records from throughout the country.”
