RSC22 Web Series | Controlled digital lending during global COVID-19 and beyond
In this session, Xuan (Lily) Pang and Peggy Glatthaar will share the stories of piloting and initiating a CDL program to ensure students have reliable, affordable access to course materials they need to be successful.
Libraries across the world have been an innovation engine of creativity and opportunity in many decades. The ongoing global pandemic and health crisis illuminates potential reforms, rethinking beyond traditional library operations and services. Controlled digital lending (CDL) is one of the emerging technologies libraries used to deliver information digitally, in support of online learning and teaching and making educational materials more affordable and accessible.
Three Florida libraries (University of Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Florida A&M University) started a conversation about how to develop strategies to make CDL possible at each institution. In this session, Xuan (Lily) Pang and Peggy Glatthaar will share the stories of piloting and initiating a CDL program to ensure students have reliable, affordable access to course materials they need to be successful. They’ll offer an overview of the emerging trends of CDL and demonstrate the development of the CDL platforms, policies, and implementation plans. Additionally, the presenters will discuss challenges and lessons learned and how each institution plans to sustain the program for future library services.
