The Governance workstream will define a system of decision making and management for the DPLA. The DPLA must be as broad, open, and non-partisan as possible. Suggestions that have already been raised include a federated model similar to the Internet Engineering Task Force, a lightweight coalition, a government commission, a new 501(c)(3), or a grafting the system onto a pre-existing structure, such as the Library of Congress or the American Library Association. Questions to address include how best to create coherence out of diversity by erecting one virtual library out of a multiplicity of collections and to which common practices the DPLA should adhere.
