This session will report on progress in archival activity as measured by the Keepers Registry (a global monitor on the archiving arrangements for electronic journals), including statistical analysis, by country and by type of archiving agency. With the increase to 12 Keepers, there is greater international reach: the Cariniana Network (Brazil) which gives hope of further engagement from Latin America; PKP (Public Knowledge Project), providing archival services for e-journals using the Open Journal System (OJS). Outreach to a number of the larger national libraries is also part of the strategy (and may result in some breaking news). The session will present the highlights of two challenge areas tackled by the Jisc-funded Keepers Extra workshop which brought together eight Keepers alongside speakers from Research Libraries UK, the International Standard Serial Number International Center (ISSN IC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO): tackling the long tail, and archiving different types of born digital content. There will also be discussion of how libraries can now use the Title List Comparison tool to discover the archival status of the list of serial titles that each regards as important.
