About Us > Governance


Portico is a service of ITHAKA and is overseen by its Board of Trustees. The Trustees represent all members of the academic community with an interest in the long-term preservation of scholarly content, including university presidents, librarians, publishers, and faculty members.

In addition, an advisory committee of librarians and publishers is dedicated specifically to Portico. The committee ensures the careful review and guidance of Portico’s policies and approach as well as consistency with best practices in digital preservation.
