Resources for Vendors

The California Digital Library licenses digital materials in consultation with UC campus subject area selectors (bibliographers) and the 10 campus Collection Development Officers. The acquisitions process reflects the CDL’s commitment to collaboration with campuses to discover and acquire electronic materials in support of campus teaching and research; most proposals take a minimum of three to six months for review and decision-making.
