Digital Public Library of America receives $81,000 from the Whiting Foundation to research educational uses of its growing collection

“The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is pleased to announce that it has received an $81,000 grant from the Mrs. Giles Whiting Foundation to explore educational possibilities for its growing collection. The grant will allow DPLA to convene in-person meetings for educators from a wide variety of institutions, including K-12 schools, community colleges, small liberal arts colleges, and research universities, this fall in Boston. The purpose of these meetings will be to define what DPLA and other large­-scale digital collections can do to better adapt their resources to address educational needs at the secondary and college level.” (via Digital Public Library of America)
