German National Consortium and Portico sign digital preservation agreement
- 05 Jun 2017

Digital preservation service Portico and a national consortium of German academic institutions has announced an agreement for consortium member libraries to join the Portico digital preservation service. By participating in Portico, German institutions and the communities they serve will be assured continued access to important scholarly content from across the world.

The consortium-wide license agreement enables any member library to join Portico. At the time of its signing, 54 libraries had already committed to join Portico - including the Max Planck Digital Library, LMU Munich and Jülich Forschungszentrum - with additional members expected to enroll now that the agreement is in place.

The decision to join Portico follows an extensive program to formulate a national strategy for digital preservation of licensed content that was undertaken by the NatHosting project, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The report from NatHosting endorsed Portico as one of the key components of a German preservation strategy, saying, "The participation of a national consortium at Portico is recommended in order to be able to quickly secure important content."

With the participation of German National Consortium member libraries, Portico support now exceeds 1,000 participating libraries in 21 countries. More than 400 publishers - representing more than 2,000 societies and associations - also participate in Portico. The Portico archive holds over 1.2 billion files - representing more than 470,000 e-books and 22,000 e-journals.

Portico announces 1,000th library supporting digital preservation
- 01 Jun 2017

Digital preservation service Portico has announced that the University Library of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, as its 1,000th participating library. Since its inception in 2006, libraries have relied on Portico to preserve academic e-journals, e-books, and other digital scholarship, and ensure that it remains available for future generations.

The University Library of Erlangen-Nuremberg joined alongside 53 other German institutions following an exhaustive evaluation funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), which recommended participation in Portico as part of their national strategy for digital preservation of licensed content.

Increasingly, library consortia around the world have turned to Portico as part of a national digital preservation strategy. Portico is supported by CAPES in Brazil, SURFMarket in the Netherlands, the Conference of Italian University Rectors (CRUI), b-on in Portugal, the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries, MINCYT in Argentina, and dozens of other consortia and university systems around the world.

Several of Portico's earliest supporters took the occasion to reflect on Portico's growth over the last decade, and the increasing awareness of the importance of digital preservation. In addition to growing library participation, Portico has been able to make great strides in both participating publishers as well as the amount of electronic scholarship it preserves.

Last year, Portico announced that its archive had exceeded 1 billion preserved files.
