Portico to preserve Wiley digital collections
Beginning in 2021, Portico will preserve Wiley Digital Archives collections to ensure that content will be secure and available into the future. Wiley Digital Archives content will be preserved for ongoing access together with the Wiley journals, book, and Cochrane Library content that is already in Portico.
Wiley Digital Archives restores, digitizes, and catalogs content from academic and scientific societies and universities, making centuries-old, unique primary source content accessible anywhere in the world. Current archives include the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal Anthropological Institute, the New York Academy of Sciences, and the Royal Geographical Society.
“We’re delighted to work with Wiley to preserve this content,” commented Stephanie Orphan, Director of Publisher Relations at Portico. “Together, we will safeguard these historical and cultural collections so they will be accessible to future generations of researchers, scholars, and students.”
Portico provides trustworthy, cost-effective preservation of electronic resources. Currently preserving 1.7 billion files, it is one of the largest and broadest collections of e-resources of any third-party preservation service with more than 880 publishers and 1,000 libraries supporting its work.
“Digital preservation is a vital part of the scholarly communications infrastructure. In partnership with Portico, Wiley can expand the types of digital content we’re safeguarding for the future,” said Duncan Campbell, Senior Director of Global Sales Partnerships at Wiley.
