Controlled Digital Lending

This paper discusses ARL’s position on controlled digital lending of library materials and lays out considerations that may support research libraries in crafting their use case and preparing for a fair-use analysis. The paper also reflects a discussion of digital-lending practices, concerns, and opportunities held by the ARL Advocacy and Public Policy Committee and guests during the October 2021 Fall Association Meeting. That discussion, and subsequent conversations around an earlier version of this paper, informed ARL’s position on digital lending.
