Association of Research Libraries Preserves with the CLOCKSS Archive
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the CLOCKSS Archive have partnered to preserve ARL’s e-journals and e-books in CLOCKSS’s geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. By archiving with CLOCKSS, the Association of Research Libraries has committed to the preservation of their e-journals and e-books. This action provides for content to be freely available to everyone after a “trigger event” and ensures an author’s work will be maximally accessible and useful over time. The publications to be archived are available via ARL Digital Publications http://publications.arl.org/. Currently this content includes the ARL Annual Salary Survey, the ARL Statistics collection, Research Library Issues, and SPEC Kits.
