Our first DPLA harvest of 2023 has arrived, and we are excited to welcome two new members to Texas Digital Library’s DPLA metadata aggregation service! Southern Methodist University and UT Southwestern Medical Center both shared metadata records with the Digital Public Library of America for the first time this month.
Institutions who participate in our DPLA Aggregation Service through TxHub share their metadata records with the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). Every three months, those records are updated in DPLA in our quarterly harvest. TDL’s aggregation service is part of the TxHub partnership with the Portal to Texas History. This quarter, TDL members shared over 84,000 records with DPLA.
