Turn the Page: The Future of Libraries in the Wake of Hachette v Internet Archive

When: September 14, 2023 at 4:00pm - 5:00pm EDT - This event has passed

This past March, a district court in New York awarded summary judgment to a group of book publishers in their litigation against the Internet Archive over certain forms of digital book lending. The ruling could have profound implications for libraries as they work to make content available that they preserve in digital form or that is “born digital” on acquisition. On this panel we’ll discuss potential ways forward for libraries if the ruling is let stand on appeal: is controlled digital lending (CDL) dead, or are there ways to achieve its aims that avoid what is now considered liability? Or is licensing going to be the way to fulfill libraries’ missions in the digital age?
