Based on Stanford University Libraries, the LOCKSS Program provides award-winning, low-cost, open source digital protection tools to provide libraries and publishers with access to persistent and authoritative digital content. The LOCKSS Program is a library-led digital protection system built on the principle of "securing large numbers of copies". The LOCKSS Program develops and supports libraries using open source end-to-end digital protection software.

The LOCKSS system allows librarians at each institution to access and protect their subscribed e-content and restore the printed buying model that librarians are familiar with.

The Global LOCKSS Network protects today's e-journals and e-books for tomorrow's readers. The Global LOCKSS Network is a proven conservation approach that empowers both libraries and publishers in a unique way. The Global LOCKSS Network is managed by the Stanford University Libraries LOCKSS Program. For additional information, you can consult the LOCKSS Program website.
