EBSCO Information Services has partnered with Portico in an effort to preserve digital collections from its Digital Archives products, mostly historical source materials used by scholars and students. PRWeb brought this news to us in their article, EBSCO Partners with Portico to Ensure Long-Term Availability of Digital Archives.”

EBSCO first launched the Digital Archives in 2009 and will now be taking part in Portico’s D-Collection Preservation Service which is solely supported by publishers that have committed their collections to the archive and more than 120 D-Collections are preserved.

“The decision to participate in Portico’s D-Collection Preservation Service was carefully considered in consultation with our data partners, as well as leading service providers, archivists, librarians and scholars working in the digital humanities,” said EBSCO’s Senior Vice President, Product Management, Michael Laddin. “Through our participation in Portico, we can provide customers with state-of-the-art preservation services in support of the premier primary source content in our collections.”
