LOCKSS (Lots Of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe)

A LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe) is open source software that allows institutional libraries to crawl vendor sites for purchased articles and materials that are digitally stored in a LOCKSS Box in case the vendor’s website malfunctions. If such a malfunction event occurred, the library would still be able to provide continual access to their purchased holdings from their LOCKSS Box.
