OECD working with CLOCKSS and the Global LOCKSS Network to ensure long-term preservation


OECD is working with both CLOCKSS and the Global LOCKSS Network to ensure the long-term preservation of books, journals, datasets and working papers in the OECD iLibrary. OECD iLibrary is the online library of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) featuring its books, papers, podcasts and statistics and is the knowledge base of OECD's analysis and data.  2,500 subscribing institutions worldwide put OECD publications at the finger-tips of over 7 million users in more than 100 countries. This content will now also remain accessible for future users.

The OECD's content platforms span decades of materials that are not only crucial to the scholarly record, but also to the global historical record. By joining the Global LOCKSS Network and also the CLOCKSS Archive, OECD is furthering its commitment to ensuring access to this content by researchers and the public alike via trusted research libraries and memory institutions worldwide. Our shared goal is to instil confidence in authors, scholars, policy makers, libraries, and members of the public that this important content will be safely and securely preserved for future generations.”
