With the help of Institute of Museum and Library Services grants, The New York Public Library, DPLA, and public libraries across the United States are re-thinking traditional library policies and building new technology to make the libraries and their digital collections easier to access. Our goal is to break down barriers to library use so that more people take advantage of all the services that the library offers.

Since last DPLAfest, NYPL has launched the SimplyE app and helping public libraries nationwide adopt the tool. The Library Simplified team will give you an update on the progress of their project, as well as a demo of the tool. Libraries implementing the tool will share feedback on their progress and usage.
