Portico Partners With Knowledge Unlatched

Portico announced an agreement with the open access (OA) initiative Knowledge Unlatched that will preserve Knowledge Unlatched’s Pilot Collection of OA ebooks in Portico’s E-Book Preservation Service.

There are 28 ebooks from 13 scholarly publishers in the Pilot Collection. “We want to [assure] libraries that this content will be available to researchers and students for the long term,” says Frances Pinter, Knowledge Unlatched’s executive director.

Portico debuted its E-Book Preservation Service in 2008, and libraries began participating in 2011. Publishers and libraries help pay for the archive’s operating costs.
