"Controlled Digital Lending: Past, Present, Future"

Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) encompasses practices and technologies that enable libraries to lend digital surrogates of their print materials. It is one approach among a broader set of digital circulation services that include the lending of licensed materials, the distribution of open-access and in copyright materials, and the secure sharing of born-digital materials. This presentation will discuss past and current projects in Controlled Digital Lending, why it matters, and what the future of this practice might entail. The presentation will also solicit audience and expert feedback on current projects in CDL and talk together about how we might advance as a community in the resource-sharing space.
