LOCKSS: Distributed Digital Preservation Networks
Leroy, Anthony
As university libraries, preserving digital objects for future generations is our key mission. In this talk, we will discuss the crucial features required for an ideal digital preservation solution based on risk assessment. We will then show how the LOCKSS open source technology can help libraries build a robust distributed digital preservation network to ensure the very long term availability of their scientific heritage.

Legal Framework for Digitalisation and Storage of Digital Works by Public Archives
Koščík, Michal
The paper aims to provide a practical overview of the legal framework for the digitization of copyright works, which are a part of the collections and archives of public and general-interest institutions.
