Empowering Libraries Through the Internet Archive’s Open Libraries Program
The Internet Archive’s Open Libraries program empowers libraries to lend digital books to patrons using Controlled Digital Lending. Attendees will learn how CDL works, the benefits of the Open Libraries program, and the impact that the program is having for partner libraries and the communities they serve.
Presentations and public talks
The purpose of the 2019 Library Leaders Forum was to continue developing the Internet Archive’s Open Libraries program and to build a community of practice around controlled digital lending. In our one day workshop, we brought together libraries that have implemented controlled digital lending and those that are considering it so as to share information and support one another in developing controlled digital lending at scale.
