Controlled Digital Lending: Getting Books to Students During the Pandemic & Beyond

May 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused mass closures of schools, libraries, and higher education. Join us for a discussion on how we can use technology to make sure that students, educators, and others can continue to remotely access the collections they need, during lock-down and beyond.

  • Cory Doctorow – Author of Radicalized and Walkaway, special advisor to the EFF; visiting professor of practice in library science, UNC-Chapel Hill
  • Chris Freeland – Director of OpenLibraries at the Internet Archive
  • Lisa Petrides Ph.D. – CEO & Founder of Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education (ISKME)
  • Lisa Weaver – Director, Collections & Program Development at Hamilton Public Library

Moderator: Meredith Rose, Policy Counsel at Public Knowledge
