NISO Puts CDL Recommended Practice Draft Out for Public Comment

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) is making its draft Interoperable System of Controlled Digital Lending Recommended Practice available for public comment through April 21, 2024.

“Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) allows libraries to replicate the right to lend their legally acquired items in a digital format to patrons under ‘controlled’ conditions, meaning a library can lend only the number of copies of a specific title that it owns and that controls are implemented to prevent copying or distribution of the work,” NISO notes. “The process of implementing CDL can be quite complex and must take into account various scenarios and systems requirements.”

The draft Recommended Practice features “four distinct architectural models covering both CDL within a single institution as well as shared CDL infrastructure: 1) Standalone CDL system, 2) Integrated Institution-based System, 3) Shared CDL Infrastructure/Integrated Consortium-based System, and 4) Distributed/Decentralized CDL. These models are described using common attributes, allowing potential adopters to compare and consider practical aspects of how they might be developed or implemented in a local environment. Model-specific recommendations enable readers to better understand system requirements for various types of lending scenarios in an individual library or across a consortium or set of libraries.”

For more information, read the press release.
