About Our Logo
Main content start
The LOCKSS Program logo reflects our core principles: community, decentralization, and durability.
Variously interpreted, our logo may be:
- A tortoise — In folklore, tortoises represent deliberateness, determination, and longevity.
- Peers seated around a table — Digital preservation is most sustainably situated in a community with a shared commitment to the content that matters to them.
- Nodes in a network — LOCKSS supports digital preservation only as a function of multiple systems working together.
LOCKSS partners are welcome to make use of the logos to promote their LOCKSS-supported initiative or participation in the LOCKSS community. Please contact us if you need a logo with different dimensions.
