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

Karen G. Schneider on LOCKSS

Karen explains LOCKSS software clearly and succinctly — its technology, costs, benefits, and purpose. She compares LOCKSS and Portico, too.

[Libraries] have never before owned so little of the content they manage. LOCKSS offers one solution… [T]he use of LOCKSS for preserving local born-digital content — with a free download, plus one morning’s worth of time — is certainly worth a spin around the block.
