All persons who access the services or otherwise use them, including occasional visitors to the site, are designated as “users” in these Terms of Use. These terms of use form the entirety of the agreement between the parties and replace all previous agreements regarding the use of the Services. Jill Cousins, Executive Director of Europeana, welcomed the agreement and said: “Europeana was designed to be open and interoperable, and being able to work with the DPLA confirms this objective. Through these joint efforts on two continents, Europeana and the DPLA want to encourage the creation of a global network with partners from around the world. The DPLA planning process began in October 2010 with a global vision.

At a meeting in Cambridge, MA, 40 leaders of libraries, foundations, universities and technology projects agreed to work together to “create an open and distributed network of comprehensive online resources that would build on the country`s living heritage, consisting of libraries, universities, archives and museums, to educate, inform and strengthen everyone in current and future generations.” Check out all the DPLA offers on your main DPLA page or view only the IDHH collections. The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) regularly collects collections of digital carli collections (CDC). Under its rules, the DPLA does not allow items with usage restrictions, i.e. in CONTENTdm, that an item is limited to a particular IP address or ip area or a specific username. If a collection contains items with use restrictions, the DPLA refuses to collect the entire collection. The structure of these hubs provides an overview of what the DPLA will achieve at the national level. Each service collects content from its region, supporting the libraries and archives responsible for this content. The DPLA will help aggregate metadata and materials and connect users to the content of these many regional and institutional digital libraries. Just as you find a book that is not available in your local library via a remote lending system, the DPLA combines U.S. digital collections to make a variety of content directly available to users.
