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.
LIBRE enters its alpha testing development stage where a limited number of invited researchers will be trying available features to discover errors and provide valuable feedback for improvements before the official beta release.

“Considering the capability of today’s technology, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume that scientists and researchers are able to collaborate and access each other’s work easier than ever before. However, that assumption would be wrong.”
