East View Information Services (www.eastview.com), a leading provider of high-quality information products and services in world languages and English translation, is pleased to announce a landmark digital preservation agreement to ensure the long-term accessibility of database content in partnership with the CLOCKSS program.
East View is the first aggregator to archive content with CLOCKSS. East View began offering aggregated content on its online Universal Database™ platform in 1996. The aggregations include newspapers, journals, and other publications from Russia, Ukraine, other countries of the former Soviet Union, China, and the Middle East. East View recognizes there is a need for major archiving solutions like CLOCKSS for vernacular publications to ensure the long-term survival of digital content and preserve access for libraries and subscribers notwithstanding natural disasters, the vagaries of business and other unforeseeable events that may occur at any point in the future.
All content on East View’s Universal Database™ platform will continue to have appropriate copyright and access protections, while East View has taken the step to ensure long-term subscriber accessibility via CLOCKSS technology. The CLOCKSS initiative was born at Stanford University and its sponsors include the National Science Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and its oversight board includes publishers and libraries alike.
