Springer Partners with the LOCKSS Program

The LOCKSS Program is pleased to announce Springer's 
participation in the Global LOCKSS Network.

Springer has committed for LOCKSS preservation nearly 42,000 
e-books; more than 2000 e-journals, 174 eReference works, and 
22,000 Protocols. By implementing a library ownership model, 
Springer is enabling libraries to fulfill a core library mission 
- to build and preserve digital library collections.

The LOCKSS Program balances the needs of libraries and publishers 
to access and preserve important scholarly materials over time. 
LOCKSS libraries have perpetual access to content preserved in 
their institution's LOCKSS Box. Publishers receive all user hits; 
the LOCKSS technology does not divert traffic from a publisher.

Heather Ruland Staines, Senior Manager eOperations says, 
"Springer is pleased to announce that SpringerLink is LOCKSS 
compliant, allowing libraries to preserve content and maintain 
access to their subscribed and purchased content to support the 
long term needs of the scholarly community."

"Library collections are a keystone for perpetual access and long 
term preservation. We are delighted to be working with Springer 
to support libraries and their institutions," says Victoria 
Reich, Director LOCKSS Program.

Springer Science+Business Media is a leading global scientific 
publisher, publishing around 2,000 journals and more than 6,500 
new books a year. It has the largest STM eBook Collection 
worldwide, and the largest business-to-business publisher in the 
German language.

The LOCKSS Program is a unit of the Stanford University 
Libraries. Founded in 1998 libraries are building and preserving 
general collections in the Global LOCKSS Network. Approximately 
450 publishers have committed their content for LOCKSS 
preservation. Libraries are using Private LOCKSS Network to 
preserve government documents (Digital Federal Depository Library 
Program), data sets, and special collections materials. See
