Are e-journals no longer available via the publisher or any other source? Portico might be your solution!
Worldwide libraries and publishers are working together on preservation of digital content. The Portico Digital Preservation Service is a respectable platform which offers a way to preserve digital content and make it available for their members. Archived content will be granted to libraries supporting Portico when titles are no longer available from the publisher or any other source.
Maastricht University (UM) supports this initiative.
Who participates in Portico?
At this moment 957 libraries and 354 publishers from 14 countries around the globe participate in Portico as part of their digital preservation strategy.
The UM offers 23 Portico journals.
