Contributors are cultural heritage institutions who contribute their digitized collections to DPLA through PA Digital. We work with libraries, historical societies, museums, and other related institutions in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to best prepare their digital collections for upload to DPLA. PA Digital provides documentation, guidelines, workshops, video modules, and other assorted resources to help Pennsylvania institutions through each step of the contribution process.

If you’re interested in becoming a contributor and not sure where to start, we recommended beginning by reviewing our Readiness Checklist. This list gives you a sense of what is required to contribute and allows you to assess your institution’s readiness for contributing.

Contact us with any questions about the resources you find here, or to suggest resources you would find helpful.
