RSC22 Web Series | Controlled digital lending for resource sharing: Law and policy since 2018

In this session, the presenters will explain the basic framework for CDL.

This event has passed.

For more than a decade, libraries have engaged in a variety of digital lending practices that are now described as controlled digital lending (CDL). But only more recently, in 2018, were the foundational law and policy arguments for the practice of CDL articulated in what has become a widely cited legal white paper. Since that time, the law, policy, and practice of CDL have evolved considerably.

In this session, the presenters—Dave Hansen and Kyle K. Courtney, both lawyers, librarians, and authors of the original CDL white paper—will explain the basic framework for CDL. They will review recent developments in CDL law and policy, including integration in library norms such as reserves and interlibrary loan. They also will review international developments and the copyright infringement lawsuit filed by the ‘Big Five’ publishers against Internet Archive for CDL.
