Open Access Archiving List

An open access archiving maillist has been set up, primarily for managers of
open access archives who would like to discuss issues relating to OA
archiving in the dual sense of providing access and preservation.

The reason for setting up this list was interest expressed in exploring the
use of LOCKSS software as a preservation mechanism for OA archives. The
nature of LOCKSS requires collaborative groups, as preservation involves a
set of LOCKSS boxes (usually about 6) which constantly communicate with each
other. There are reasons why LOCKSS boxes are best dispersed. Hence, this
list can serve as a means for OA archivers to meet other potential
LOCKSS-group participants.

The list is open to anyone, however, in order to avoid spam, subscribing and
unsubscribing is manual. To subscribe, please send your e-mail address to:
