  • 1. Leveraging (C)Lockss for PCA (post cancellation access) at Claremont
  • 2. Libraries collection roles
    Selecting, archiving, providing access
    Goal:preserve an authorized reader’s access to the web editions ofscholarly journals while staying within libraries’ budgets and yet respecting publishers’rights
    A Local copy – custody of the content we buy
  • 3. What is LOCKSS?
    Gold standard for ejournal perpetuity
    Archive -- local custody of purchased content
    Preserve – redundancy and p2p error correction
    Access – Sits seamlessly between user & publisher, stepping in when publisher link fails
    A preservation Internetappliance, not an archive
    transparently supplies pages itis preserving even if those pages are no longer available from the original publisher’s website
  • 4. The lockss difference
    Take custody of the subscribed material & preserve it
    links and searches continue to resolve to the published material even if it is nolonger available from the publisher
    digital equivalent of stacks where anauthoritative copy of material is always available
    An institution using LOCKSS to preserve access to ajournal in effect runs a web cache devoted to that journal
  • 5.
  • 6. How does it work?
  • 7. What have we been waiting for?
    Publishers stayed away in droves, so little of our content was “available” in lockss
    October 2009 SPRINGER on board -> tipping point
    Offer from CLOCKSS founder to send tech team to Claremont to see what we they do about lockss archiving of ALL of our PCA-rights content
    Time sensitive—need proof of concept for March SCELC board meeting
    Idea is to run this SCELC-wide, w/ press release
  • 8. What do I need from you?
    Assistance in bringing up the lockss box next week
    Someone(s) to learn more about lockss with me so we can understand together what it will take to make this happen (from the tech guys when they visit)
    R&D of a process that we can hand off to the collection team for ongoing growth and maintenance—assuming it gets off the ground
