LIBRE Preserves with the CLOCKSS Archive
MAY 06, 2013
The CLOCKSS Archive is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Open Scholar CIC to preserve the LIBRE Repository in CLOCKSS’s geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes, located at 12 major research libraries around the world. This action provides for content to be freely available to everyone after a “trigger event” and ensures an author’s work will be maximally accessible and useful over time.
Open Scholar’s director Pandelis Perakakis said, “We are very excited to begin our collaboration with CLOCKSS Archive, which ensures that authors can find in LIBRE a safe and permanent home for their entire research output”.
CLOCKSS Executive Director Randy S. Kiefer adds, “The CLOCKSS Archive welcomes the LIBRE Repository with their coverage of scholarly works into the community’s archive. By archiving with CLOCKSS, Open Scholar has ensured that the scholarship in the repository will continue to be available to as wide an audience as possible, now and in the future.”
