Earlier this year, ZSR Library began contributing items from ZSR Digital Collections to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), which provides access to the digital collections of libraries, archives, museums and historical societies across the United States.

The Wake Forest University contribution includes digitized copies of student newspapers, photographs, letters, diaries and oral histories dating from the 1800s to the present day. Currently over 7,300 items from ZSR appear in the DPLA.

On the DPLA site, users can search and browse ZSR materials in new and interesting ways, including by timeline and map. The DPLA also provides an application programming interface API, so software developers, digital humanists and others can build novel Web and mobile applications.
