UC–Davis and CDL Project Looks at the Future of Ebook Lending

The University of California (UC)–Davis and the California Digital Library (CDL) are working on a project to explore the expansion of digitized book lending. UC–Davis, which is lending more digitized books because of the pandemic, has been working with the HathiTrust Digital Library’s Emergency Temporary Access Service to provide titles. UC–Davis calls the preliminary assessment of this experiment “a resounding success with faculty and student users.” It announces the following:

Under the leadership of the UC Davis Library and the California Digital Library (CDL) and with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, UC has begun an investigation of key questions around the future of ebook lending. …

The project’s findings will be presented in a white paper and are expected to lay the foundation for broader work in future years to develop a comprehensive ebook delivery system for the UC.
