UK LOCKSS Alliance at UKSG Conference

Join us for a drink at the UKSG 35th Annual Conference and Exhibition!

The UK LOCKSS Alliance will be hosting an informal event between 17:00 and 18:00 on Tuesday 27th March, in the Morar seminar suite located on the upper floor of the SECC.  Unwind with us before moving on to the formal dinner later that evening.

Wine, juice and canapés will be served from 5pm.  We will take this opportunity to highlight recent developments to the LOCKSS e-journal archiving initiative, notably how integration with link resolver systems is helping institutions provide continuing access to archived scholarly content.  We also wish to introduce the Keepers Registry, the international facility which records who is looking after the world’s e-journal content.  This should take around ten minutes, leaving plenty of time for questions, discussion and networking with colleagues.

It would be helpful if you could register interest by emailing a.rusbridge@ed.ac.uk.  We look forward to seeing you there!
