5.1.2. Adding Archival Units
To add AUs to the system for preservation:
In the top-right menu, click Journal Configuration.
In the center menu, click Add AUs.
Select one or more collections of AUs by selecting the checkbox next to the appropriate collection.
Click the Select AUs button. It may take a bit of time (60+ seconds) for the next screen to appear, while the list of AUs is built.
Select one or more AUs from the AU list. You may click Select All if you would like to select all AUs. If you choose to use select all AUs, please note that the next step may take some time to load.
Click the Add Selected AUs button. The time it takes for the page to refresh depends on the number of AUs added. Give the LOCKSS system some time to load the AUs and reload the page before moving on.
A screen will show a list of added AUs. Crawling of these new AUs will start automatically – no further action is necessary unless prompted by a footnote next to an AU’s name.
