With a critical mass of journals being produced electronically, and a growing portion of those moving to e-only availability, reliable digital preservation services with broad and deep coverage have become increasingly important. As e-content has grown, so have archives such as Portico and CLOCKSS. But there is more work to be done! With the larger players accounted for, deciding which publishers and journals to target for preservation efforts can be complicated.

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has long been at the forefront of preservation efforts for scholarly materials in print form and has dealt with some of the issues currently being faced by digital preservation services. Over the last two years, with generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CRL has completed a project to collect and analyze granular data on archiving and digitization of print journals and newspapers, with an ultimate goal of promoting coordinated strategic action by libraries and consortia.

In this session, attendees will learn about CRL’s Data-Centered Agenda for Preservation & Access, the challenges facing CLOCKSS and Portico as we chase the long-tail of e-publishers, and ways in which the organizations propose working together to expand on CRL’s print-based research to provide direction for ongoing digital preservation efforts. The role of other related resources, such as the Keepers Registry, from EDINA at the University of Edinburgh, and Scholar’s Portal, from the Ontario Council of University Libraries will also be discussed.

We will actively seek feedback from the audience on the CRL outcomes and our planned collective work in setting priorities for e-journal preservation.
