The submission summarizes some of the existing development work across the team’s projects that demonstrates a stack of repository, framework, and user interface that could be extended as part of a DPLA. They applaud the architectural concept of a distributed network of resources and believe that a stack of heterogeneous technologies is one of the groups of building blocks that can form such a network. In particular, the Libra system referenced on the linked page serves as a functional beta. The submission also provides a brief survey of applicable technology.
