Today, April 17, 2014, the Digital Public Library of America welcomed the California Digital Library, in collaboration with the ten-campus University of California (UC) Libraries system, as a DPLA Content Hub. A Content Hub is a centralized aggregation point for a large corpus of metadata from one or more institutions, which DPLA can harvest and display in its public access system.
In its role as DPLA Content Hub, CDL will be sharing metadata records from Calisphere, a website with approximately 250,000 digital primary source objects contributed by libraries, archives, and museums across the state. Additionally, CDL will be exploring new avenues for aggregating metadata records hosted outside of the Calisphere platform and sharing those records with DPLA. Read DPLA’s full press release here:
