Wyoming Workshop for the Digital Public Library of America


The Plains to Peaks Collective (PPC) is the new Colorado-Wyoming Service Hub of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).  The DPLA website is a portal that allows visitors to discover and then go directly to the digital collections in your home institution. https://dp.la.  It’s hoped that every institution in Colorado and Wyoming has the opportunity to participate in the DPLA through the PPC.  We invite you to learn more about how to do this!

What to expect

On September 28, 2017, the Colorado State Library, in partnership with the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming State Library, will provide a free event in Wyoming for participants to learn more about the PPC.  The PPC is a joint program of the Colorado and Wyoming State Libraries and is an opportunity for you to give your institution’s unique digital collections national exposure.  During this event you will learn about Wyoming’s participation in this national digital landscape along with the nuts and bolts of participating in the PPC and the DPLA.   We would also like to hear from you!  So please bring your questions or participation concerns to the session.
