Durability and Accesibility
The development of preservation of digital content is subject to intense research. The longterm storage of e-publications will be concentrated in few institutions around the world, guaranteeing continuity, research, up to date development etc. Moreover, these institutes guarantee accessibility of the e-publications. All our publications, including the book reviews, are stored in the National Library, The Hague, The Netherlands (see the website for detailed information www.kb.nl). This means, not only that the publications are available to a big audience worldwide, it also means that our publications are durable. Hard copies are stored at the Foundation’s office. For storage of hard copies of the the palaeontological publications, conform the ICZN rules, see the appropriate section.
Besides the storage, the National Library takes care of our publications if the Foundation stops to exist. And, if the Foundations has a break down of the system, the Library provides us with a complete backup.
