National Digital Library for the United States

Inspired by Robert Darnton’s call for a national digital library for the United States which he begins to map out in a 2010 blog post for the New York Review of Books, I can see this library as resource for a network of academic institutions as well as civic ones. Small town public libraries connected to University collections, urban school libraries connected to museum libraries, and all of these libraries connected to a nexus of new media outlets facilitating a 21st web of connections, conversations and new forms of accountability.
