Dear all,

Last week we were contacted by Kenny Whitebloom from DPLA (Digital Public
Library of America) about the DPLAfest
<http://dp.la/info/get-involved/dplafest/april-2015/> they are organizing
in April 2015 in Indianapolis, USA. DPLA is working on bringing together
digital cultural resources from America’s libraries, archives, and museums,
and making them freely available to the world. In this two-day there will
be interactive workshops, hackathons, discussions with community leaders
and practitioners, fun events, and more around topics related to DPLA. In
the attached document you can read more about the plans for the event.

Kenny asked us if the OpenGLAM community would like to be involved: there
is an option for us to organize a workshop or discussion around a topic
relevant to our community. Alternatively, we can also be part of workshops
or discussion panels that have already been planned (such as one around issues
related to rights/copyright and digital libraries).

Are any of you interested in setting up such a workshop or discussion
panel, and do you have any plans for attending DPLAfest?

Best, Lieke.
