StackLife: A Unique Way to Browse, Read Digital Public Library of America Books


  • At its launch this week, the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is featuring StackLife DPLA as an example of how the DPLA’s collection of books can be mashed up with other collections and browsed in highly innovative ways. StackLife DPLA, launched today by the Harvard Library Innovation Lab, lets users find and freely read 1.7 million books from the DPLA, theBiodiversity Heritage Library, the Hathi Trust and the Internet Archive’s Open Library. StackLife DPLA enables users to browse via scrollable virtual shelves that cluster—and can instantly re-cluster—books based on their multiple subject areas. With a click, a user can read the book online.
