ISO 16363 Criteria


During the preparation for the ISO 16363 audit of the CLOCKSS Archive, it was decided to make as much documentation of the CLOCKSS Archive public as possible. This wiki is the result. The contents have been collected from a variety of sources, including:

  • Published papers
  • CLOCKSS board minutes and other Board documents
  • The LOCKSS team's internal wiki
  • The LOCKSS team's ticketing and bug tracking systems

Many of these sources were not intended to be made public, and contained confidential or inappropriate material. The contents of this wiki were extracted from them and reviewed for publication as part of the audit preparations. These pages document:

  • The structure, policies and practices of the CLOCKSS Archive.
  • The conformance of the CLOCKSS Archive to the OAIS Reference Model
  • The policies, practices and technology of the LOCKSS Program, which operates the CLOCKSS Archive under contract to the CLOCKSS Board.
  • The adaptations made to the generic LOCKSS technology for the purposes of the CLOCKSS Archive.

As structures, policies, practices and technologies change, these documents will be maintained so that up-to-date information on these topics is available to the public.

For the purposes of the audit, the wiki also contains a page for each of the ISO 16363 criteria. The goal for these pages was that they be a finding aid for the auditors, allowing them to easily locate the relevant parts of the documents for each criterion, but that all actual content be in the documents. Thus interested readers can use the documents without needing to refer to the criteria pages.

Upon request, the auditors were given access to some confidential documents. These documents are represented in the wiki by stub pages, simply saying "This document is confidential".
