We are now in the Digital Public Library of America!

November 9, 2022

We are proud to announce that through the Texas Digital Library’s Aggregation Service our digitized content is now discoverable in the Digital Public Library of America! The Digital Public Library of America is a free online platform that brings together collections of digitized content from archives, libraries, and museums across the United States.

“The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) amplifies the value of libraries and cultural organizations as Americans’ most trusted sources of shared knowledge. We do this by collaborating with partners to accelerate innovative tools and ideas that empower and equip libraries to make information more accessible.”

DPLA not only provides a way to search millions of photographs, texts, videos, and audio from around the country, it provides curated exhibits and primary source sets drawn from materials in the DPLA. These exhibits and primary source sets showcase content in the collections around various themes and topics such as “Women in Science”, “Aviation”, “The Equal Rights Amendment”, “and Food.”

Participation in the DPLA is possible through our membership in the Texas Digital Library (TDL). TDL and the Portal to Texas History form the TXHub service hub.  TDL works with members who take advantage of the service by gathering and standardizing the descriptive information for digitized content so that it can be submitted to DPLA. You can explore TDL members’ TxHub content in the DPLA here:
