2. Concierge 39: LOCKSS [2017] Online

Collection
Stanford University Libraries Concierge Project
The LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe) Program provides distributed digital preservation software and services used by hundreds of institutions across tens of networks. Established as an auxiliary of Stanford University Libraries in 1999, the LOCKSS Program originally helped libraries secure post-cancellation access to subscription electronic resources. Its focus has since expanded to preservation of the digital scholarly record more broadly and enabling communities to preserve digital materials that matter to them. As its founders, Vicky Reich and David Rosenthal, are now retired and the LOCKSS Program joins the Digital Library Systems and Services group, the LOCKSS Program is poised for major new initiatives. Come to this Concierge session to hear from Nicholas Taylor, Program Manager for LOCKSS and Web Archiving, about the present and future of the LOCKSS Program.

IIIF, DMS, Mirador... these names and acronyms are frustratingly opaque. To start unravelling the many related threads of interoperability efforts within SUL, Ben Albritton will lead a discussion based on the activities of the Digital Manuscript Program, but with an eye to applicability in other content areas. What tools do we support, what does interoperability mean for SUL content, and what can we expect in the year ahead? These questions, and more, will drive a tour of current and emerging activities.
