Case Studies

The case studies below describe how institutions benefit from the LOCKSS approach for e-journal preservation and continuing access.

The case studies confirm the value of the LOCKSS approach.  With an alternative source of supply under library control, the LOCKSS approach gives academics and librarians greater confidence in e-only journal environments.  Once a local LOCKSS archive is integrated with link resolver systems, the library has invested in a powerful tool for the preservation and continuing access of e-journal content.
