The first Plenary Session of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) was hosted at the National Archives and Records Administration on Friday. The intent was to work toward the creation of “an open, distributed network of comprehensive online resources that would draw on the nation’s living heritage from libraries, universities, archives, and museums in order to educate, inform, and empower everyone in the current and future generations.”
This sounds like a great future resource for genealogists. You can read a report written by David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, in his blog at http://blogs.archives.gov/aotus/?p=3719/
