The Keepers Registry is now available on the ISSN Portal (https://portal.issn.org)!


As of December 2019, the Keepers Registry (https://keepers.issn.org) is now fully inte- grated with the ISSN Portal the global, authoritative database for serial title identi- fication and tracking. This service aggregates preservation metadata of digital journals with ISSN descriptive metadata, thus pro- viding an accurate overview of a serial title’s journey from initial publication to trans- fer of responsibility to long-term preserva- tion by archiving agencies. In the shift from print to digital format, libraries and publi- shers need to archive not just digital serials but also ongoing ‘integrating resources’. Thirteen archiving agencies from around the world are addressing this challenge and supporting the Keepers Registry as a tool to monitor the archival status of digital content. These national libraries, non-profit organisations, and academic consortia coo- perate with the ISSN International Centre to disseminate up-to-date information about archived serial titles and titles at risk.


Grant Hurley, Digital Preservation Librarian at Scholars Portal, Canada, states that “The Keepers Registry is a crucial component of our collective preservation ecosystem. Keepers Registry gives its stakeholders the ability to evaluate what materials are being preserved and by whom, and therefore, what materials may still be at risk. As a preserva- tion service provider, Scholars Portal bene- fits from exposing its holdings data in a consistent and reliable way, which ensures its preservation practices are transparent and supports the trust of its user communities.”


Jeffrey van der Hoeven, Head of the Digital Preservation department at the Nationale Bibliotheek van Nederland (KB), Netherlands, explains that “From the perspective of long- term preservation, the Keepers Registry fulfills an important role for KB in determining the integrity of its collection”.

Craig Van Dyck, Executive Director of CLOCKSS, USA, posits that “The Keepers Registry performs several critical functions: exposing information about which scho- larly journals are preserved, and which volumes, and by which preservation archives; providing a normalized platform for users to find the information, and for archives to integrate with; and a social structure for archives to come together to collaborate. Digital preservation is an evolving field, and collaboration is key to moving forward. The ISSN International Centre makes a lot of sense as a home for the Keepers Registry.”
