How Does CLOCKSS Work
In Their Own Words:
CLOCKSS is a not-for-profit joint venture started by libraries and publishers committed to ensuring long-term access to scholarly publications in digital format. As libraries migrate from print to online-only publications, they expect assurances from publishers that their shared investments are protected and preserved for generations to come. The CLOCKSS archive provides this assurance via its secure network of content that can be accessed only when a trigger event is deemed to have occurred. CLOCKSS is unique because it makes all content triggered from the archive freely available to the world.
