When administrators at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary unveiled plans for a new online-only degree program geared specifically towards students overseas, librarians were faced with the problem of how best to provide access to research and reading materials. eBooks played a large role in the solution, but what about when there is no eBook available for a particular text? Based on a fair use argument, Controlled Digital Lending offers libraries the option to translate print books into eBooks. With Controlled Digital Lending, libraries lend one digital copy to one user at a time for each print copy they take out of circulation. Come and learn about AMBS Library's experiment with Controlled Digital Lending through Internet Archive.
