Title: eJournal Archiving: Status and Trends
Author: Walters, Tyler O.
Abstract: As library collections become increasingly electronic, librarians strive to develop lifecycle management approaches to administer them. One major issue is the anxiety all librarians feel over the long-term sustainability of e-resources such as e-journals. Digital preservation, or archiving of e-journals, is a major concern within the lifecycle perspective. However, today we have several developing technologies, services, and strategies for archiving e-journals that bear further examination. This session will begin with a brief environmental scan of e-journal archiving developments, drawing upon the recent CLIR report, E-Journal Archiving Metes and Bounds: A Survey of the Landscape (October 2006). The bulk of the session will be dedicated to a "town hall" discussion among the session attendees (and coordinated by the presenter), sharing their experiences, concerns, and ideas about e-journal archiving. The presenter is an experienced library administrator responsible for e-journal archiving and is deeply involved in digital preservation issues. Attendees are encouraged to come prepared to discuss and debate the approaches the library profession is adopting for e-journal archiving. Learning outcomes: Learn about the tools, technologies and services that are available for archiving e-journals. How e-journal archiving fits within the context of e-resource management and overall lifecycle management of information resources Be exposed to librarians' real experiences with existing approaches and technologies for e-journal archiving.
