Our library is considering doing some scanning. I have read about djvu
before, I can not find it in oss4lib's project lists.
Is it still active? Are there any replacement?
Can people with experience share? I would very want to hear about that.

There is DjVuLibre. Its license teels that:=20
"The DjVu Reference Library 3.5 was released by Lizardtech under the
GNU General Public License version 2."
But afterwards it tells that: "Several patents apply to two very
specific aspects of DjVu and DjVuLibre =85
"Most patents are owned by AT&T. LizardTech has very broad rights
to them and grants free and permanent licenses to them for the
purpose of building GPL software with the DjVu Reference Library."
( see: http://djvulibre.djvuzone.org/licensing.html )
So it seems to be both patented and GPLed at the same time. Sounds
wired, doesn't it?

Is anyone on this list using LOCKSS? We have recently begun reviewing it
and have questions about it. In particular, I would like to know if
anyone is using it with their local content.

We just started using LOCKKS. Works great. Plug it in. Turn it on to
the LOCKSS-able content, and it archives. Tastes great. Less filling.
I'm not sure, but I think LOCKSS will only harvest stuff that has been
defined as LOCKSS-able, and I don't know how to define such things. You
can't turn it loose on any ol' Web server.
