Digital Public Library of America

The Screencast Tour
Founded in 2010 at Harvard, the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) officially launched on April 18, 2013.  It is intended to be a national digital portal, providing access to millions of items - photographs, books, manuscripts, and sound and moving images. Linda W. Braun (library consultant and educator) leads a screencast orientation for users. She reviews DPLA's features, how it works, and comments on both the good and the "needs improvement".
