OCLC joins LOCKSS Alliance

OCLC: OCLC has joined more than 90 libraries from around the world that participate in the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) Alliance, a library membership consortium and active user community that provides open-source archiving software as a means to build digital collections.

OCLC joins LOCKSS in support of its collaborative effort to explore new uses of the LOCKSS technology to benefit the community and to build new capabilities for digital preservation. OCLC will work collaboratively with LOCKSS to explore the expansion of the LOCKSS technology to operate with different types of digital content.
