Tme for Time

I hope all of you remembered to spring ahead yesterday, and were on time for work this morning. For some reason, whenever I think of clocks (which is rarely misspelled), I think of the program CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS), which is attempting to build an archive of articles abandoned by their publishers. This is a related program to LOCKSS (Lots of copies keep stuff safe), which maintains currently available materials. As more and more journals become digital-only, it will become even more important to make sure we do not lose access to these valuable pieces of scholarly literature. If you haven't explored these programs, now is the time to do so!

Tme is a low-probability typo, found 11 times in OhioLINK and 33 times in OCLC. Actually, it could be higher than that, but in order to avoid false hits with acronyms, I did a search for "tme and time." You may want to try other searches as well.
