The CDL has made available two documents: “California Digital Library Technical Requirements for Database Vendors” and “California Digital Library Technical Requirements for E-Journal Vendors” on our Information for Content Providers web page.

These documents explain our technical requirements for the delivery of licensed materials, including our standards for access and services, the major technical issues of our decision-making process, and offer vendors insight into our preferred solutions, why they’re important to UC, and what the implications are for prospective vendors.

The databases document was originally created as part of the A&I Transition project.  We have recently created a document for e-journal vendors.  These documents are now available on the CDL Content Provider Information Resource Page in the technical requirements section [].
