Hi Chris,

I just heard about LOCKSS for the first time yesterday, at the NISO 
forum "Tracking it Back to the Source..." 

Micah Altman mentioned it in his talk on "Needs for Data Management & 
Citation Throughout the Information Lifecycle" as a useful tool for 
replication of distributed content.  I had to look it up: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LOCKSS.  Seems to be something the library 
people know about.

CLOCKSS, or Controlled LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe), is a not-for-profit joint venture between the world’s leading scholarly publishers and research libraries to build a sustainable, geographically distributed archive for the benefit of the greater global research community.
