  • This shows an example title from BioMedCentral’s Cell Biology.It looks exactly the same as on the publisher’s site. The only thing that’s changed is the URL at the top – the content has been served from a LOCKSS box.
  • Demand - There has been various requests from the community to change the way that e-journal archiving is conducted by the UK LOCKSS Alliance - This is the favoured solution to overcome identified constraints.Opportunity - Increasing experience and evidence (particularly from the US) that distributed digital preservation networks (often called Private LOCKSS Networks) are a cost-effective, robust and community-owned way of establishing preservation and disaster recovery capability. - Piloting a distributed digital archive in the UK will establish whether there is demand and scope for setting up a more substantial and sustainable service.It responds to the declared issue of some HE libraries that despite continuing to support the principles of the UK LOCKSS Alliance and wishing it to be sustained as part of the UK e-journal archiving structure, they are no longer able or willing to support a local instance of a LOCKSS server within their institutions.It uses a centrally managed entitlement knowledgebase to facilitate trusted access to published resourcesIt addresses a gap and provides a consortially managed (community-owned) disaster recovery and preservation service option for UK HE libraries.
