Gearing up to travel to plenary session on Friday. Some broad brush questions:
Collection development – who selects what is included in the collection? (Library of America, quick pick for inclusion)
What are the organizing principals and finding aids?
Intellectual property rights & fair use (Creative Commons license of content?)
Bandwidth (if DPLA is all on-line; will there be an off-line component? Universal broadband access in the US slated to happen by 2020.)
Where will the DPLA be maintained? Server capacity/technical infrastructure
How will it be governed & funded? (Long term sustainability)
Who are the users? How will they learn about & how to use the DPLA? Public librarians as hometown champions of the collection. DPLA isn’t a substitute for brick and mortar public libraries.
Looking forward to learning more.
