Segue estratto dal loro comunicato stampa
“By partnering with Portico and CLOCKSS, we are able to meet a growing demand in the library community for a trusted, reliable third-party archive, and to ensure that digital collections remain accessible to future scholars, researchers, and students,” said Scott Delman, ACM Group Publisher. “Scientific discovery and the educational process are not possible without reliable access to the accumulated scholarship of the past and secure preservation of the scholarly record, and these agreements are a clear step forward with the relationship between the ACM and the library community.”
This initiative is part of ACM’s ongoing investment in content, features, performance, and the worldwide reach of its Digital Library (DL). By investing in long-term digital preservation of
content, ACM’s aim is to make it easier for libraries to accelerate their transition away from print and free up resources invested in print collections in favor of new and innovative electronic productsand services.
Portico’s www.portico.org primary preservation methodology is migration, which involves transitioning content from one file format to another as technology changes and as file formats become obsolete. Their archival approach begins with receipt of source files, which comprise the intellectual content of electronic scholarly journals, directly from publishers, and features transformation or “normalization” of these diverse files to a standard archival format
which can be reliably managed over the long term.
CLOCKSS http://www.clockss.org uses Archive Nodes, whichare housed at libraries selected to be the custodians of the archived content, and at institutions that have existed for decades, if not centuries. Archive nodes are located in geographically, politically,and geologically disparate locations in North America, Europe, and
Asia. The CLOCKSS archive is governed by the participating publishersand libraries, and supports the library’s role in society as a”custodian of culture.”
