This week the Future Trends Forum returns with a spectacular guest.
Dan Cohen is the founding director of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), an innovative online archive that is both open and collaborative. It’s an extraordinary project, “something like the Google of libraries”, according to a recent article.
We’ll be discussing the DPLA and the future of digital libraries.
Before helming DPLA, Dan was a major figure in the digital humanities movement, leading the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media as a history professor at George Mason University. Along the way he kicked off the THATcamp movement and published books on digital history and Victorian mathematics.
