Dig DC, a new way to learn about DC

DC Public Library will publicly launch Dig DC Wednesday, October 8 from Noon - 1:00 pm at MLK Library (901 G St NW) in the Digital Commons.

What is Dig DC?   It's DCPL's new web portal to all sorts of materials in the Library's Special Collections.   From an email announcing the news:

Dig DC will make it much easier for D.C. residents to access the amazing resources of DCPL Special Collections - from ephemera to priceless photographs to some of our amazing maps of D.C. This is just the beginning and more materials will continue to be added over time, but there's already a lot to explore!

Please check out the site at http://digdc.dclibrary.org/ and join us for our launch party this *Wednesday, October 8th*! Our goal is to give a 360 degree view of the benefits of the new resource, so we’ve gathered a wide variety of speakers, from history buffs to authors to artists, for a round of lunchtime lightning talks about the possible impact and uses of Dig DC. The event will take place from 12-1pm in the Digital Commons at MLK Library *(901 G Street NW).
