Internet Librarians—The Power to Transform Libraries
by Cindy Shamel
The 16th annual Internet Librarian conference recently concluded in Monterey, Calif. More than 1,000 registrants and 215 speakers tackled the topic of Transformational Power of Internet Librarians. While the sessions ranged from accessibility of digital content to web analytics, two themes took center stage: the future role of libraries and the reality of ebooks. As it turns out, some would assert that the future role of libraries depends upon the ultimate impact of ebooks.

Concrete Steps Toward a Digital Public Library of America
by Paula J. Hane
The dream of a national digital public library is inching closer to reality. The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) initiative was launched in December 2010 with generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Since then it has been working to transition from a planning initiative to a fully independent 501(c)(3) organization and has crafted a draft job outline for DPLA Executive Director. The DPLA plans to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available, free of charge, to all via a large-scale digital library.
