The Digital Public Library of America Hires Dan Cohen

ImageSo, how does one go about launching one of the most anticipated library organizations in recent memory (DPLA)? Hire someone who has in many ways shaped digital humanities for 10+ years with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.  From a recent Chronicle update on Dan Cohen and his new role at the Digital Public Library of America:

“[Dan] has led major open-source development projects, helped to digitize important works of culture, supported teachers and students in accessing fantastic digital materials, and written about the importance of libraries, archives, and museums in a digital age.”  

Dan Cohen will be taking over the Digital Public Library of America in the coming months and I am very excited about the possibilities.
