Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society has received a $5 million donation to create a large-scale digital library, which would include collections from museums, libraries, and additional archives.
The contribution from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Arcadia Fund will support an intensive, two-year, grassroots effort to create a working plan for the digital library, according to Law Technology News. “The concept of a national digital library has bounced around since the early 1990s but has yet to be realized,” writes the author.
The Digital Public Library of America project is being coordinated by the center but involves a wide array of participants, including the government, foundations, libraries and museums.
Let’s hope they consider using PDF/A.
