Portico is now preserving e-books from more than 90 university presses in 6 countries.
This includes Cambridge University Press and university press e-books hosted by JSTOR (Books at JSTOR), Project Muse (UPCC Collections), and Oxford University Press (University Press Scholarship Online).
With the Books at JSTOR program, Portico will preserve e-books from more than 30 university presses as well as independent not-for-profit organizations. Project Muse and Portico partnered in late 2012 to preserve e-books from more than 70 presses. Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press have been working with Portico since 2006 and 2007 respectively; first to preserve their e-journals and then to preserve their e-books.
The community goes beyond the presses themselves. Nearly two-thirds of the university libraries at these presses’ home institutions also participate in Portico. This collaboration signals the kind of university-wide commitment to preserving scholarly publications that’s needed today. “Portico participation from both university libraries and university presses reflects the founding purpose of Portico—to create a trusted, shared digital preservation archive that the community as a whole can support,” stated Carol Mandel, dean of the division of libraries, New York University and Portico advisor.
