The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is designed to bring together content from America’s libraries, archives, and museums and make them freely available online. Its goal is to make the written words, art, historical records, and science of the U.S. available as widely as possible. DPLA users can search the millions of items in the catalog, save items in lists, and share those lists with others.
The DPLA API provides a programmatic method for accessing the metadata for items stored by the DPLA. Among other information, each metadata record contain a link to the object's location on the content provider’s website.
