LOCKSS– stands for Lots Of Copies Keep Stuff Safe
– It is based at Stanford University Libraries.
How does it work?
I am glad you asked that question. LOCKSS is a digital preservation tool and support that enables libraries to preserve their own e-content material. It preserves the original publisher’s format and can be easily accessed.(How great is that!!!)
So instead of only having books in the library that may get old and torn you can use this tool preserver to store your content for a long-term. This method of storage will also make your library stay relevant in today’s world were most people access their journals and articles via web.
