Announcement: CLOCKSS adds its 11th archive node worldwide, in Italy

--

CLOCKSS is very pleased to announce that it has added an eleventh
archive node to its network of worldwide, redundant, and distributed
archive nodes.

The new node is hosted at the Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, in
Milan, Italy. The node will store a complete version of the CLOCKSS
archive content. Like all CLOCKSS nodes, it uses award-winning
open-source LOCKSS technology to automatically and continually check
with the other nodes, audit itself, and repair any differences. If
content in the archive becomes no longer available from any publisher
("trigger" event), CLOCKSS will release the content and make it
available for free to the entire world.

Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore also joins the CLOCKSS board, and
will work alongside all participating publishers and libraries to
decide on policies and best practices for the archive.

As Ellis Sada, Library Director at the Universita Cattolica del Sacro
Cuore, puts it, "The new CLOCKSS archive node at our university
represents a way for all Italian academic and research libraries to
join an international community and be actively involved in the
process of long-term archiving."

The archive node at Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore brings the
CLOCKSS network of archive nodes to a total of eleven (see list
below). CLOCKSS node locations are selected to be geographically and
geopolitically diverse, and housed at major libraries with many
centuries of experience and continuity protecting the world’s
scholarship.

Gordon Tibbitts, CLOCKSS Executive Director, said "We are grateful to
the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore for taking on this leadership
role. At CLOCKSS, we believe that the best plan for very long term
preservation is diversity, and putting our future in the hands of the
university libraries who have preserved our scholarly heritage for
centuries."

The eleven CLOCKSS archive nodes are hosted at:
Australian National University
Indiana University
National Institute of Informatics, Japan
OCLC Online Computer Library Center
Rice University
Stanford University
Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore
University of Alberta
University of Edinburgh
University of Hong Kong
University of Virginia
