Controlled Digital Lending by Libraries (District Dispatch)
Controlled digital lending (CDL) is the term for any library project that digitizes print materials and makes them available in a manner consistent with traditional lending principles. CDL requires the use of digital rights management to ensure a consistent owned-to-loaned ratio, so that a library cannot circulate more than the number of copies it owns, and only authorized users have access to these digitized works. Libraries perceive copyright as a roadblock to this vision, and this session seeks to demonstrate why copyright can be a library’s ally instead. For more information and to sign in, visit:
