DPLA Aims to Make Cultural Heritage Content Freely Available on Wikipedia

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) received a $750,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to facilitate a multiyear effort “to make millions of cultural treasures from hundreds of American libraries, archives, and museums freely available online, including Renaissance manuscripts from Philadelphia’s Science History Institute; historic photos of the Pacific Northwest from Seattle Public Library; and portraits of 18th-century actors from the University of Illinois.”

DPLA has been working with the Wikimedia Foundation, which operates Wikipedia, for about 3 years to share photographs, documents, and files on the Wikimedia Commons free repository. “Sloan’s support will allow DPLA to dramatically increase the number of participating organizations and the amount of essential cultural heritage content available on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and related Wikimedia projects,” DPLA notes.

For more information, read the announcement.
