Portico is pleased to announce that the University of Oklahoma has entered into an agreement with Portico to preserve World Literature Today. Through this agreement with Portico, the University of Oklahoma ensures that its e-journal will be preserved and available for future scholars, researchers, and students.
WLT was founded as Books Abroad in 1927 by Roy Temple House, a scholar of vision from the University of Oklahoma. Now in its ninth decade of continuous publication, WLT has been recognized by the Noble Prize committee as one of the “best edited and most informative literary publications” in the world, and was recently called “an excellent source of writings from around the globe by authors who write as if their lives depend on it” (Utne Reader, January 2005). Created by the Oklahoma Territorial Legislature in 1890, the University of Oklahoma is a doctoral-degree-granting research university serving the educational, cultural, economic, and health-care needs of the state, region, and nation.
Portico will be a mechanism to provide post-cancellation access to the title committed to the archive.
