DS 2.0

DS 2.0 is the project to reimagine and rebuild the DS online resource as an inclusive online union catalog for all pre-modern manuscripts in the United States. In July 2020, through the University of Pennsylvania serving as our administrative sponsor, DS was awarded a National Leadership for Libraries grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). This page is to document the work on the project funded by the grant as we rebuild DS for the future.
