Digital Preservation: EBSCO Announces Partnership With Portico
EBSCO is partnering with Portico to preserve collections from its Digital Archives products. EBSCO’s Portico participation means that there will be uninterrupted access to the historical content in these collections.
EBSCO will be taking part in Portico’s D-Collection Preservation Service which preserves digitized historic collections on behalf of participating publishers. This service is solely supported by publishers that have committed their collections to the archive and more than 120 d-collections are preserved in Portico today.
EBSCO’s Digital Historical Collections to be preserved in the Portico archive include the American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection series (1684-1912), African American Historical Serials, the ATLA Historical Monograph Collections, Civil War Primary Source Documents, the Arte Público Hispanic Historical Collections, Gateway to North America, Revolutionary War Era Orderly Books, and much more.
