LOCKSS

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a nice program and I'm glad people are doing this. "A library uses the LOCKSS software to turn a low-cost PC into a digital preservation appliance (a LOCKSS Box) that performs four functions: it collects newly published content from the target e-journals using a web crawler similar to those used by search engines; it continually compares the content it has collected with the same content collected by other LOCKSS Boxes, and repairs any differences; it acts as a web proxy or cache, providing browsers in the library's community with access to the publisher's content or the preserved content as appropriate; it provides a web-based administrative interface that allows the library staff to target new journals for preservation, monitor the state of the journals being preserved, and control access to the preserved journals."
