At ALA please [Fwd: [DIGLIB] encourage publishers to make their content "LOCKSS-able"] Lauren Corbett 07 Jun 2005 16:46 UTC

Please forgive duplication if you are on the other lists that got this
message, but I feel it's important to support LOCKSS and want to spread
the word.

This conference season encourage publishers to make their content

LOCKSS is a potential solution to the problem of preserving and
archiving electronic serial literature. Libraries that run a LOCKSS box
can collect, own, and preserve for the long term a copy of the
electronic serials they subscribe to, but only if the publishers give
permission. For more information about LOCKSS see:

Many publishers have said they will give permission, but fewer have
added the necessary permission pages to their web sites allowing LOCKSS
computers access. Apparently publishers are not following through
because the library community has not expressed an interest.

When you see your publisher friends this conference season, please
encourage them to make their content LOCKSS-able.
