Digital Preservation: Since Beginning of 2014 Ten Publishers Have Partnered with CLOCKSS
It has been a very busy start to 2014 for CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) welcoming ten new partners since the beginning of the year.
What is CLOCKSS?
In Their Own Words:
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 uniquely assigns this abandoned and orphaned content a Creative Commons license to ensure it remains available forever.
