Dear CDL signatories and interested parties:


Hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!


As we near the end of the fall semester, I  wanted to share with you information about a CDL event that we're hosting next year, along with an invitation to attend.  We hope to see some of you there!



CDL Symposium - Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Save the Date!


As Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) has been covered at various library meetings and webinars (e.g., ALA, SLASPARCCharleston) over the year, interest has grown and practical questions have arisen.  Georgetown University Law Library is pleased to host an all-day Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) Symposium on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 to bring together interested parties to discuss the practical aspects of CDL.  Coverage will include:

·  Different CDL models, approaches, and platforms/technologies;

·  Demonstrations of digitization equipment (including optional hands-on experience); 

·  Workflow management;

·  Staffing models and options; and

·  A deep dive into technical processes.

Registration is free, though seating is limited.  All libraries and their representatives are welcome to attend. Please register here:
