During the past year, SENYLRC and HRVH have been collaborating with ESDN to facilitate the sharing of digital collections from member institutions to DPLA. In April, ESDN contributed a first batch of 90,000 metadata records from New York cultural heritage institutions to DPLA. Included in this initial contribution are records from Hudson River Valley Heritage, New York Heritage, Long Island Memories, and the New York State Library. These New York collections join more than 10 million items already available through DPLA.

Empire State Digital Network (ESDN) is the New York service hub of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). The network is administered by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) in collaboration with eight allied regional library councils collectively working as NY 3Rs Association, Inc. Together, they provide the necessary personnel and technological infrastructure to contribute digital resources from hundreds of New York’s libraries, archives, museums, and cultural heritage institutions to the DPLA.
The Digital Public Library of America (http://dp.la) strives to contain the full breadth of human expression, from the written word, to works of art and culture, to records of America’s heritage, to the efforts and data of science. Since launching in April 2013, it has aggregated over 10 million items from libraries, archives and museums nationwide. The DPLA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.
