Become a Digital Public Library of America Rep!

The Digital Public Library of America is looking for volunteers to help spread the word about DPLA in their local communities.  If you are enthusiastic about open access, digital collections, and the potential of a national digital library, get involved in outreach for the DPLA by volunteering as a DPLA Community Rep.

DPLA Community Reps will:
  • Organize activities that promote the DPLA as a service, tool, or platform using DPLA materials;
  • Share outputs (blog posts, group notes, Storify stories, images, video, etc.);
  • Check in with DPLA staff about progress and share experiences via the DPLA Reps listserv;
  • Be willing to participate in speaking or event opportunities; and
  • Represent the DPLA formally as an acknowledged Rep on our website and informally through various networks.
Reps will receive a “box” containing DPLA slidedecks, event ideas, one-pagers, and swag to use in their efforts. The DPLA staff will also offer periodic webinars to share updates, new activities, and new resources. We anticipate that being a community rep will require only a small commitment of time.
