The Digital Public Library of America

This has not even been on my radar before. I’m glad to learn about this online library resource…

Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter

The Digital Public Library of America is one of the most useful online libraries available today. It is new, having been formed less than two years ago. It is not a genealogy library. Rather, it is a general-purpose library that just happens to have a lot of genealogy material in addition to other topics. The Digital Public Library of America’s mission is to make cultural and scientific works more accessible to the public.

At the time these words are being written, the Digital Public Library of America lists 8,416,553 items from libraries, archives, and museums. A search on the word “genealogy” returns a list of 65,707 items available via the library’s online portal.
