Controlled Digital Lending for Print Course Reserves - PILOT
We are pleased to announce a new alternative for Print Course Reserves referred to as Controlled Digital Lending (CDL)
What is Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) for Print Course Reserves:
CDL is a way of sharing books online for students who are unable to come to the library to use the physical copy. Using the legal copyright framework of “first sale” and “fair use”, in education settings, the library can digitize whole books and make them available online for Print Course Reserves with controlled access. The basic tenet of CDL is the digital version is read-only, not downloadable, no printing, and maintains a one-to-one ratio with our print holdings. The one-to-one ratio means the print copy is unavailable for borrowing when it has been made available as a CDL version.
In order to provide CDL for Print Course Reserves the library recently purchased and is piloting new digitizing equipment and software programs. DSE Content Server provides the digital content management and the MyDocs app as the content reader for the instructors and students to use. The MyDocs is a free app downloadable from Microsoft, Apple, and Android stores.
The DSE Content Server will create AutoLinks and QR codes which the instructors can post into their course outlines or Laulima modules. Instructors and students will checkout and read the item or view it later in the MyDocs app.There is one viewer at a time per copy. If the item is not immediately available, the students can input their email to be notified when it becomes available. The CDL loan periods are consistent with the Print Course Reserves loan periods, i.e. 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours, 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, or 7 days. There is a blackout time of 15 minutes before the students can have repeated access to the same item.
