UK LOCKSS Alliance members have requested clearer information on the titles available in the Global LOCKSS Network. Over recent months, development staff at EDINA have contributed effort to improve the process around this reporting. Our ability to report has been assisted by significant metadata improvements made throughout 2011 by the Stanford LOCKSS team, and utilises output from the recent Title List feature.
An updated list is now available on the LOCKSS website. The report lists all e-journal titles that are committed to the Global LOCKSS Network. The “Preserved” columns lists the volumes that have been preserved in the Global LOCKSS Network. The “In Progress” columns lists the volumes that publishers have given explicit permission to preserve and that are in-line to be processed and preserved. We also report on those publishers that have committed their content but have not yet made available explicit permission statements; these titles are listed without an entry in either the “Preserved” or “In Progress” columns.
