Digital Public Library of America The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is a project aimed at bringing about a large-scale public digital library. It was launched by Harvard Universitys Berkman Center for Internet u0026amp; Society in 2010, with financial support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and several other funders. It aims to unify such disparate sources as the Library of Congress, the Internet Archive, various academic collections, and presumably any other collection that would be meaningful to include. ... They have yet to ... decide such issues as how near to the present their catalog will come. There is an ongoing dispute regarding so-called orphan works and other questions of copyright. John Palfrey, co-director of the Berkman Center, stated in 2011: We aspire to establish a system whereby all Americans can gain access to information and knowledge in digital formats in a manner that is free to all. It is by no means a plan to replace libraries, but rather to create a common resource for libraries and patrons of all types.u0026rdquo; (API-Stack,Library,Library-Stack,Target)

Open Library To build Open Library, we need hundreds of millions of book records, a wiki interface, and lots of people who are willing to contribute their time and effort to building the site. To date, we have gathered over 20 million records from a variety of large catalogs as well as single contributions, with more on the way. Open Library is an open project: the software is open, the data are open, the documentation is open, and we welcome your contribution. Whether you fix a typo, add a book, or write a widget--its all welcome. We have a small team of fantastic programmers who have accomplished a lot, but we cant do it alone!
