Board of Directors

CLOCKSS is a tax-exempt, 501(c)3, not-for-profit charitable organization, developed  and governed by libraries and publishers. Unlike other archiving solutions, CLOCKSS answers to its community, not to a parent company.

VALUES

The CLOCKSS Board of Directors is committed to the following values, to ensure the organization’s sustainability:

  • Because money spent on digital archiving competes with other needs, CLOCKSS is committed to minimizing publishers’ fees so that publishers will not pass along additional costs to libraries. CLOCKSS also aims to minimize libraries’ fees, so that they have more money to spend on content from publishers.
  • All triggered content is made freely available. CLOCKSS will not create additional access barriers.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Board of Directors guides CLOCKSS’ management and future and sets annual fees. Because CLOCKSS is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, all contributions to CLOCKSS are tax deductible in the United States.
