The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is an all-digital library that aggregates metadata—meaning information describing an item—and thumbnail images for millions of photographs, manuscripts, books, sounds, moving images, and more from libraries, archives, and museums around the United States. DPLA brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world.
