CLOCKSS Safeguards Its Preserved Content for Future Generations

CLOCKSS is working on formalizing its Succession Plan, which will ensure that the scholarly content it hosts will continue to be preserved for use by researchers, librarians, and publishers. It notes, “Four of CLOCKSS’s twelve library nodes have agreed to continue to preserve the digital content that is preserved in CLOCKSS, if the organization were to cease to exist. In that unlikely event, Stanford Libraries (U.S.), Humboldt University (Germany), the University of Edinburgh (U.K.), and the University of Alberta Libraries (Canada) would take over the responsibility and the organization for running the LOCKSS software across the CLOCKSS content, to continue preservation for the future.”

The CLOCKSS board (comprising 12 academic libraries and 12 academic publishers) has endorsed the Succession Plan.
