The DPLA has lots of cool content, and WP DPLA is a way to help your readers discover and explore that content. It takes the tags you’ve assigned to your post – say, cheesehead and Packers or pizza, beer, and nachos – and fetches four random items from DPLA’s partner collections, and displays them at the bottom of the post.

This plugin was originally developed for the Maker Challenge at THATCamp CHNM 2013 (which it won!). Read the THATCamp post for more details on how the plugin works.
