FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Lunchtime Listen: LOCKSS in Six Minutes, with Cat

Free Range Librarian Karen G. Schneider sets at a kitchen table with her cat and a basket of eggs and gives a great, simple explanation of how LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) works, why your library needs to be a part of it and why it won’t be hard. All in six minutes. Watch and learn.

If you pick this as a lunchtime listen, you’ll still have 54 minutes of your lunch hour to take care of other errands or read why privacy, access and preservation of government information need a geographically distributed depository library system of the future to be a reality.
