We interviewed 17 libraries selected based on the group members’ prior knowledge of a CDL operation, or based on selection as a peer institution. While still largely theoretical in some of the institutions we interviewed, even in those institutions conversations were starting. Of our 17 interviews, 12 currently have a form of CDL in production or pilot status.
Interviews consisted of hour-long talks with either a point of contact or team at each institution, with questions and conversation being informed by a worksheet template which contains space for most possibly relevant information.
Information was shared by our interviewees under the condition of confidentiality and anonymity. This version of the report has been edited to accommodate that agreement so that our findings might be shared more widely.
