University of Southern California Libraries Join Digital Public Library of America as a Content Hub

“The University of Southern California Libraries have become the first library in California to partner with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) as a content hub. USC has contributed more than 250,000 items from the USC Digital Library to the DPLA, including photographs, text documents, moving images, and digital audio, all of which are now accessible to the DPLA’s global audience of scholars, students, and public researchers. Launched in April, the DPLA’s collection comprises more than 2.8 million items, creating a unified, massive, scholarly and cultural resource for the study of the United States’ digitized heritage. The newly added USC Libraries’ collections will more than quadruple the amount of material available through the DPLA relating to the history of Los Angeles and Southern California.” (via Digital Public Library of America)
