Online Computer Library Center to Participate in CLOCKSS Initiative -
Joins expansive list of libraries and publishers involved in the
community archive

PALO ALTO, California, June 23, 2006— Online Computer Library Center
(OCLC) is the newest member to join CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS—Lots of
Copies Keep Stuff Safe), a not-for-profit community approach to securing
access to electronic scholarly content for the long term. More than
53,000 libraries in 96 countries and territories around the world use
OCLC services to locate, acquire, catalog, lend and preserve library
materials.

“The partnership between OCLC and CLOCKSS is a natural combination and
aligns with our common goal to ensure the perpetual preservation of our
scholarly materials,” said Jay Jordan, President & Chief Executive
Officer, OCLC. “Although there is much work ahead of us, we look forward
to establishing a sustainable model of preservation that meets the needs
of OCLC’s membership and the worldwide research community.”

OCLC’s partnership with CLOCKSS coincides with a recent contract from
the Library of Congress to the CLOCKSS partnership for collaboration
with the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation
Program.

“We are pleased that the OCLC has joined CLOCKSS and reinforced the
library community’s support of this important initiative,” commented
Gordon Tibbitts, President, Blackwell Publishing. “Their participation
furthers our objective to share governance in all decisions and ensure
that no single entity can compromise the long-term integrity of the
archive.”

Developed through a community-based and open process that ensures
complete transparency, the CLOCKSS partnership uses the robust
technology underpinning the acclaimed LOCKSS Program. CLOCKSS provides
additional functionality to that of the use of the LOCKSS system, which
is widely known as a technology to help preserve a library's local
collections in the long term. CLOCKSS aims to provide a long-term global
archiving solution that will serve the joint library and publisher
communities in the event of a long-term business interruption or in
making orphaned or abandoned works readily available to the scholarly
community.

Commented Vicky Reich, Director of LOCKSS Program, Stanford University
Libraries, “The CLOCKSS board welcomes OCLC as a full partner in our
work to build an archive that will make available materials accessible
to the broad community.”

About CLOCKSS
CLOCKSS, or Controlled LOCKSS is a community-based initiative to build a
trusted dark archive in order to protect online scholarly content from
catastrophic events and other long-term interruptions. Management of the
process and the content is exercised by a joint board of publishers and
librarians to ensure that all decisions are community-based. The
initiative is implementing and evaluating both social and technical
models to support a 'large dark archive' that is both fail-safe and has
an acceptable process for providing continuing access for orphaned
materials over a two-year period. During this time the initiative will
work to build a full-scale production system using a significant portion
of the content of the publisher members.
The work of the initiative is transparent and will be independently
assessed, with findings reported to the wider community. For more
information about CLOCKSS, visit www.lockss.org/clockss
