It's different from PG in that it has the support of a lot of major libraries AND museums, and I'm sure it will gain a LOT more as it gets under way. Also, PG is limited in terms of what they include. They're a GREAT project and resource, but I think DPLA and PG will be more complimentary than competitive.
