  • John – this was in your original deck; feel free to kill if it’s no longer relevant
  • Open Access Matters:- General importance of OA in a digital era- Responsive to changing modes of accessing information- Important for libraries to continue to incorporate many types of materials beyond texts in analog formats: images, audio, video, dataRationale:- Broad public access to information in a digital age on a “free to all”-A future for libraries in a cloud computing world-A “clean slate” project on what a digital library could offer- Competitive situation: many other countries (S. Korea, Norway, Japan) have them, as well as Europeana
  • Brief sketch of DPLA:Rapidlygaining momentumHeadquartered initially at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard UniversityIdeally a movement in the makingAnecdote: America’s first subscription library began in Philadelphia, if Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography is to be believed; how it came together
  • Harvard-based for now, but will almost certainly spin outJP –how to bring up funders is up to your discretionThree foundations have provided funding (Sloan, Open Society Foundation, National Endowment for Humanities)Future commitment from ArcadiaSeventeen members of Steering Committee: public library directors, university library directors, Library of Congress, National Archives, IMLS, Internet Archive, Law.Gov, moreSmall but growing: 1000+ people on listserv and wikiApproximately 60 workstream co-chairs/conveners: DLF, Smithsonian, public libraries, industry, publishers, tech world, museums, archives, university libraries
  • Three workshopsGrowing community: over 1000 on listservWiki and alpha website (shown in earlier slide)Launch event: October 20-21 in DCAggressive timeline; will produce prototype by April 2013Next slides:SixworkstreamsBeta Sprint
  • Six workstreams – photos are of some of co-chairsApproximately 60 people committed to 18-month grassroots efforts to convene wide range of stakeholders for the DPLA effort(Membership in workstreams open to the public)
  • Beta Sprint Review Panel
  • The DPLA, like the Internet, can’t work as a local, stand-alone institutionGlobal partnerships are essentialMost likely point of connection: open linked data; draft accord with EuropeanaOpen to collaborations: toward a “Human Knowledge Project” on a global level
