Harold B. Lee Library named one of the 25 most used digital libraries

What do the Harold B. Lee Library (HBLL) and the Smithsonian Institution have in common? Besides being vast receptacles of information, both were named as top 25 most-used sources of content in the last year

This ranking measures usage of content provided through the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), a new resource that creates a single location for researchers to find American books, images, videos and historic records. The DPLA pulls its content from libraries across the country, including the HBLL and several Smithsonian museums, the Library of Congress, Utah State Archives, the Utah State Historical Society and the University of Utah's J. Willard Marriott Library. 

The HBLL contributes to the DPLA through the Mountain West Digital Library (MWDL). The MWDL shared their content with the DPLA and is now one of the largest contributors to this important national resource for information.
