Lockss forpc aatcuc

  1. 1. Leveraging (C)Lockss for PCA (post cancellation access) at Claremont<br />1/22/2010<br />
  2. 2. Libraries collection roles<br />Selecting, archiving, providing access<br />Goal:preserve an authorized reader’s access to the web editions ofscholarly journals while staying within libraries’ budgets and yet respecting publishers’rights<br />A Local copy – custody of the content we buy<br />
  3. 3. What is LOCKSS?<br />Gold standard for ejournal perpetuity<br />Archive -- local custody of purchased content<br />Preserve – redundancy and p2p error correction<br />Access – Sits seamlessly between user & publisher, stepping in when publisher link fails<br />A preservation Internetappliance, not an archive<br />transparently supplies pages itis preserving even if those pages are no longer available from the original publisher’s website<br />
  4. 4. The lockss difference<br />Take custody of the subscribed material & preserve it<br />links and searches continue to resolve to the published material even if it is nolonger available from the publisher<br />digital equivalent of stacks where anauthoritative copy of material is always available<br />An institution using LOCKSS to preserve access to ajournal in effect runs a web cache devoted to that journal<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. How does it work?<br /><br />
  7. 7. What have we been waiting for?<br />Publishers stayed away in droves, so little of our content was “available” in lockss<br />October 2009 SPRINGER on board -> tipping point<br />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<br />Time sensitive—need proof of concept for March SCELC board meeting<br />Idea is to run this SCELC-wide, w/ press release <br />
  8. 8. What do I need from you?<br />Assistance in bringing up the lockss box next week <br />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)<br />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<br />
