DPLA Launch event canceled but DPLA to go live on Thursday April 18

The Digital Public Library of America‘s launch event, to have taken place at the Boston Public Library where a bomb exploded on Monday during the Boston Marathon, has been canceled. The DPLA will still go live on Thursday April 18. Article here. The DPLA will have a larger event in the fall which will evolve into their DPLAfest. The Library’s Executive Director, Dan Cohen, is quoted “I see the building of a new library as one of the greatest examples of what humans can do together to extend the light against the darkness. In due time, we will let that light shine through.” (h/t Inside Higher Education. Their source here.)
