DPLA aims to expand this crucial realm of openly available materials, and make those riches more easily discovered and more widely usable and used, through its three main elements:
    1. A portal that delivers students, teachers, scholars, and the public to incredible resources, wherever they may be in America.
    2. Far more than a search engine, the portal provides innovative ways to search and scan through the united collection of millions of items, including by timeline, map, virtual bookshelf, format, subject, and partner.
    3. A platform that enables new and transformative uses of our digitized cultural heritage.
