Taking the Long View: Factoring Preservation and Continuing Access into your Library Workflow

A One-Day Workshop led by EDINA


July 10th 2015

National Rail Museum, York


With the transition from print to digital publishing, it is no longer libraries but publishers who provide access to online e-journals. Librarians now need to regularly review holdings and subscriptions to ensure appropriate access and optimal use of financial resources. Historically, preservation was an incidental by-product of the access role undertaken by libraries. Today, the stewardship that underpins long-term access for the future is increasingly undertaken by external agencies such as Portico and CLOCKSS. It can thus be difficult for librarians to ensure that their communities will have stable, long term access to materials in perpetuity: this lack of clarity can have significant consequences for decisions around print rationalisation, cancellation, and budget allocation.

This knowledge exchange workshop will explore how librarians can plan for long-term access to journals. Participants will have an opportunity to share stories on how their institutions conduct annual reviews, print rationalisation exercises and other related processes, and there will be discussion of how Jisc services at EDINA services such as the Keepers Registry and SUNCAT can assist in these workflows.

This event is free but places are limited.

The National Railway Museum is conveniently placed near to York railway station. More details about the venue and arrival can be found here:
