Content Accessibility in the COVID Era: Controlled Digital Lending Curation in Theological Studies
The Digital Theological Library (DTL) has a growing Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) collection that needs to be made accessible to subscribing schools and individuals as physical access to collections has been limited due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The CDL project is an effort to increase accessibility by digitizing books and then storing the physical copies so that only the digitized copy is accessible by users. The DTL has purchased, scanned, and uploaded thousands of print volumes. Reagan Callahan was responsible for linking approximately 3,000 digitized books in Dropbox to the library’s LibGuides and activating those records within OCLC World Share.
