Emerald digitalisiert Zeitschriftenarchiv

Emerald meldete am 21. August, dass die früheren Jahrgänge aller laufenden Zeitschriften digitalisiert werden sollen: "We will be digitizing our entire full-text article inventory and delivering the backfiles of all Emerald's live journals online in 2008. Emerald currently provides the full-text of its journals online from 1994 onwards (when we first started to capture content electronically). Through the digitization of the backfiles, all articles will be made available online from the very first volumes of the journals. This is a very large project and we are partnering with the British Library to scrupulously source and scan each article. We anticipate that we will be able to achieve virtually 100% coverage of full-text article content, adding over 50,000 articles to our existing database of 85,000 items".
Dabei wird auch mit LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe) zusammengearbeitet: "Digital preservation of Emerald articles will be secured on behalf of librarians and the community at large in the event of a disaster. We are unable to guarantee perpetual access in hard copy".
