Digital Public Library of America on the Kojo Nnamdi Show

2011.12.01-IMG_5259Today, along with Maura Marx (DPLA/Berkman Center) and Maria Pallante (Copyright Office/Library of Congress), I appeared on the Kojo Nnamdi Show (WAMU) to discuss the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).

From the Kojo Show website:
It's something of a dream for many: to digitize and make accessible the vast number of books, documents, artifacts, photos, videos, and other materials housed at thousands of different institutions across the country. The Digital Public Library of America is working on making it a reality. We explore a collaboration between libraries, museums, and archives - including the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian - that aims to put it all online.
It was my first time on live radio (or radio in any form!). Thanks to Yukon Radio Dave (David White) of the CBC for some hints on being a guest. The whole team at the The Kojo Nnamdi Show were very helpful and made for a great experience. I also got to give a small plug to the Biodiversity Heritage Library!
