Some organizations may not have the capacity to manage their own assets and licensing activities directly within DBL. In these cases they may wish to appoint another organization to operate within DBL as their delegate. A delegate organization can be assigned one or more of the roles: Archivist, Librarian, or Licenser. The roles given to a delegate organization allow users of that organization, who also have been assigned the necessary user roles, to interact with and manage assets belonging to the owning organization as if they were members of that owning organization with the same role.
