What is DPLA?

The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is a platform for sharing unique resources amongst the nation's libraries. Most of these resources come from the Special Collections of the contributing institutions, meaning they are unpublished, one-of-a-kind, primary source materials (wondering what primary source is?).

University of Utah participates in DPLA via its membership in Mountain West Digital Library, along with other Utah institutions like Brigham Young University, Weber State University, Utah State University, and Southern Utah University. 

You are welcome to use any and all of these resources, but DO pay attention to the RIGHTS information listed underneath each resource. The rights information will tell you WHAT you can do with the resource.

DPLA also offers a free ebook platform via its Palace Project. Learn more here.
