OCLC joins LOCKSS Alliance

DUBLIN, Ohio, USA, 22 June 2006: 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.

LOCKSS is a low-maintenance mechanism for collecting, storing and providing long-term access to a library's own local copy of authorized content.
