MINNEAPOLIS, USA. March 24, 2020 – East View Information Services, a leading provider of high-quality information products and services in world languages and English translation, is pleased to announce a landmark digital preservation agreement to ensure the long-term accessibility of digital content in partnership with the CLOCKSS program.
CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not-for-profit joint venture between the world’s foremost scholarly publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community. Their geographically and geopolitically distributed network of redundant archive nodes are located at 12 major research libraries around the world.
By archiving with CLOCKSS, East View has committed to the preservation of digital content. East View recognizes there is a need for major archiving solutions like CLOCKSS for vernacular publications to ensure the long-term survival of digital content and preserve access for libraries and subscribers notwithstanding natural disasters, the vagaries of business and other unforeseeable events that may occur at any point in the future.
All content on East View’s Universal Database™ eBook platform will continue to have appropriate copyright and access protections, while East View has taken the step to ensure long-term subscriber accessibility via CLOCKSS technology.
“East View recognizes that as more institutions turn to online content in addition to or in place of print, they are looking for assurances of permanent access,” said Kent D. Lee, founder and CEO. “We recognize that librarians build collections today, but must ensure the future availability of today’s intellectual, cultural and historical content. East View’s decision to partner with CLOCKSS is natural, ensuring that libraries have a true preservation solution and permanent access to digital collections.”
