Three solutions currently provided for preserving journal publishers’ content are being widely adopted by many institutions, yet confusion about each is apparent when you talk with the librarians signing on to support them. Rice University and Indiana University are participating in each of these initiatives and will offer an objective review of LOCKSS, CLOCKSS and Portico. We will provide a “member’s” perspective of the differences between these initiatives, hoping to demystify the library community’s understanding of them and to communicate our expectations of any preservation solution. Included in the presentation will be a peek inside of the archives to see what the content looks like for an end-user who is presented with an archival copy of a journal article compared to the article as delivered by the publisher’s site.
