ReShare at The Charleston Conference 2020

Join Kristina Rose of New York University and Sebastian Hammer of Index Data as they present an innovation session, “Recognizing opportunity: A path forward for controlled digital lending,” at The Charleston Conference on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at 5:20 Eastern Daylight Time.

The presentation will introduce the concept of CDL and explore the viability of its implementation in libraries in terms of risk tolerance and integration into existing workflows. It will describe the work being done by Project ReShare to create a minimum viable product for controlled digital lending, including workflow models, prototypes, and early software demonstrations. Finally, it will explore a long-term vision for CDL in libraries, including consortial CDL models and the establishment of a CDL Implementor’s group to promote collaboration, best practices modeling, and systems interoperability.

The Charleston Conference is an informal annual gathering of librarians, publishers, electronic resource managers, consultants, and vendors of library materials in Charleston, SC, in November, to discuss issues of importance to them all. For more information and registration details, visit
