Wiley to Preserve E-Books in Portico

Portico Introduces New E-Book Preservation Service for Libraries

Portico is pleased to announce that John Wiley & Sons has entered 
into an archive license agreement to preserve its collection of 
more than 8,000 online scholarly monographs.  With this 
agreement, Wiley expands its relationship with Portico, which 
began in 2006 with Wiley's commitment to deposit their entire 
list of e-journals to the Portico archive.

Wiley joins De Gruyter, Duke University Press, Elsevier, Palgrave 
Macmillan, SPIE, and Springer in participating in Portico's 
e-book preservation service, which was introduced to scholarly 
publishers in mid-2008. The addition of Wiley's 8,000 titles 
brings the total number of e-books committed to the Portico 
archive to more than 43,000.

Beginning in 2011, Portico will disaggregate its services into 
separate e-book and e-journal services for the library community 
in response to both the growth of the Portico archive, and to the 
community's evolving preservation needs. The separate services 
will enable libraries to choose where to invest their 
preservation resources based on their collections, needs and 
budgets. Portico's new e-book service for libraries will be 
similar to the existing e-journal service in that library access 
is governed by trigger events and post-cancellation access when 

Since 2005, the number of titles and types of content preserved 
in Portico has grown significantly. To date, over 11,000 
e-journals and 43,000 e-books have been entrusted to the Portico 
archive.  For a complete list of Portico-related facts and 
figures, please visit Portico's Archive Facts & Figures at 
facts-figures. The complete list of titles and participating 
publishers is available at
