This ambitious project brings together digitized print and image resources from collections all over the country.  In similar fashion to Google Books, research library collections, have been scanned and are keyword serachable.  Unlike that platform, though not nearly as extensive, everything is free to the public and readable in full.   Part of what makes DPLA so unique is that it also contains archival materials, manuscripts, government documents (municipal, county, state) and photographs into the mix.  There are even art images from the ARTstor database.  Check it out!                  Tuesday’s Tip — January 7, 2014 (Digital Public Library of America)
