— CA Digital Library (@CalDigLib) February 14, 2022

Under the leadership of the UC Davis Library and the California Digital Library (CDL) and with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, UC has begun an investigation of key questions around the future of ebook lending. 

The Mellon-funded project will be managed by Sandra McIntyre, a consultant who brings deep knowledge of digital libraries, access to digital scholarship, and the educational technology sector. She will work under the leadership of a steering committee of six senior leaders from the UC Davis Library and the California Digital Library, the UC system’s central unit for providing shared digital library resources and services.
