LOCKSS Program Receives Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Grant
-- Funding to ensure long-term preservation of dynamic Web 2.0 content

The LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) Program at Stanford 
University has been awarded a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon 
Foundation. The two-year grant accelerates work on new ways to gather 
and preserve the kinds of dynamic and diverse digital content that 21st 
century scholarship demands.

“LOCKSS was originally developed to preserve academic e-journals exactly 
as they were presented on publisher websites,” according to Victoria 
Reich, Executive Director and co-founder of the LOCKSS Program. “At that 
time, most content was static, but with new technologies such as Web 2.0 
and HTML 5, published content is increasingly dynamic and interactive. 
This makes long-term preservation much more challenging.”

The Mellon Foundation grant will enable LOCKSS to develop new techniques 
for collecting dynamic digital content from modern publishing platforms, 
and ensuring its long-term preservation. Incorporating these techniques 
into future versions of the award winning, open-source LOCKSS digital 
preservation software will benefit the entire academic community.

About The LOCKSS Program. Lots Of Copies Keep Stuff Safe (LOCKSS), is 
part of the Stanford University Libraries. Self-sustaining since 2004, 
this collaborative community program enables libraries to build digital 
collections and preserve them with full fidelity. It ensures that 
publisher usage statistics are maintained, while providing readers with 
continual access to authoritative scholarly literature.
