Post-cancellation access is also known as perpetual access (ongoing access to an electronic resource). Both publishers and libraries have recognized that in some cases, even after a library has terminated a license to an electronic resource, it may be necessary for that library to continue to have ongoing access.
Portico provides a reliable means to secure post-cancellation access, if participating publishers choose to designate Portico as a provider of post-cancellation access.
A relationship with Portico provides a means to meet library demands for post-cancellation access, where appropriate, without incurring an ongoing operational obligation that lacks an associated revenue source.
The majority of participating Portico publishers supply post-cancellation access. To see a full detailed list of items designated with post-cancellation access, visit the Who Participates in Portico section
