“GPO’s partnership with DPLA will further GPO’s mission of Keeping America Informed by increasing public access to a wealth of information products available from the Federal Government,” said Public Printer Davita Vance-Cooks. “We look forward to continuing this strong partnership as the collection of Government information accessible through DPLA continues to grow.”
In addition, nearly 100,000 items from the Getty Research Institute are also now available through the DPLA. Documentary photograph collections, archives, and books dating from the 1400s to today are just a click away.
The DPLA currently includes more than eight million items from libraries, archives, and museums, and is becoming an incredible teaching resource. The current exhibitions (which put together organized sets of text, documents, and images) include , History of Survivance: Upper Midwest 19th Century Native American Narratives, and Leaving Europe: a new life in America.
Whether you are a teacher, a student, or just interested in learning more about our cultural heritage, the DPLA is well worth a visit.
