The Community

The LOCKSS Alliance is one of the most powerful library-led cooperatives in digital librarianship today.

LOCKSS Alliance  participants have claimed their right to local custody of important digital collections via their LOCKSS Box.

A LOCKSS Box is a digital bookshelf with automated preservation. Local custody separates “payment” from “access” and ensures 100% perpetual access for as long as the LOCKSS Box is in good working order.  Read more about LOCKSS.
