Where do we keep that? The new Keepers Registry and the digital content in your collection

The Keepers Registry is an international registry of e-serial content preserved by archiving institutions and organizations. Recently, it has moved its home to the ISSN International Centre. This move highlights both the challenges of maintaining common services and the benefits of allying them with complementary services. The Keepers Registry had previously been hosted by Edina at the University of Edinburgh and funded by JISC. Once JISC decided to refocus and allocate its money elsewhere, there was little time to find and fund a new home for the Keepers Registry. The scramble over the past six months illustrates the need to ensure hosting and funding not merely for content, but for the services we all use to help us do our work in building collections and managing the content within them. Luckily, the ISSN International Centre was not merely interested in serving as the home for the Keepers Registry, but showed how the Keepers Registry is a natural complement to the other services provided by the ISSN IC. We shall show how the Keepers Registry and some of the other services offered by the ISSN IC can be used to great benefit by libraries, publishers and all those invested in scholarly communication. It will provide a look into what digital preservation means in a practical sense and what that means in terms of a commitment by individual institutions and through collective action.
