First Annual DPLAfest
The College of Social Sciences and Humanities is partnering with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), the Boston Public Library, and the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science to bring together librarians, archivists, and museum professionals, developers and technologists, publishers and authors, teachers and students, and many others to Boston, MA to celebrate the DPLA’s successful April 2013 launch, its recent milestones, and its future at the first annual DPLAfest.
DPLAfest 2013 — a two-day series of events free and open to the public — will include a reception at the Boston Public Library on the evening of Thursday, October 24 (the reception had been originally planned for April 18, 2013, but was postponed in light of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings on April 15). On Friday, October 25, participants will gather at Northeastern University and the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) for a full day of workshops, discussions, and other hands-on activities.
We hope that you’ll join us for the first annual DPLAfest!
Friday, October 25, 2013 at 8:00am to 5:00pm
