Collections and Collection Development
Is there a past in your future? journals, libraries, scholarly communities, and safe havens for content when everyone is getting digi with it 4/9/2010
April 9th, 2010
In the past, libraries purchased paper copies of scholarly journals and stored them. In the present, they purchase access to online copies and store nothing (relying instead on external networks and agencies to preserve access to some of this content). In the future, might access to your current scholarship disappear completely? How actively are you engaged within your discipline in understanding how your scholarship might be preserved for future generations of researchers? Ensuring future access to online scholarly journals now requires an unprecedented level of coordination, cooperation, and negotiation between scholars, libraries, and publishers.
We invite you to learn more about the issues of future access to online scholarship, the problems involved in e-resource preservation, and the processes, investment commitments and institutional strategies libraries and other stakeholders are developing to solve them. Review the video from a one-day forum of scholars, librarians and administrators from Princeton, Columbia and Penn to explore the challenges in creating realistic strategies for long-term preservation of e-journals, and learn more about current consortial endeavors to create trusted repositories, such as LOCKSS, Portico and HathiTrust, that might provide a viable future for today's e-resources.
