Portico (www.portico.org/digital-preservation/) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a license agreement with Taylor & Francis Group to preserve the publisher’s entire collection of e-books. With this agreement, Taylor & Francis expands its relationship with Portico, which began in 2006 with the publisher’s commitment to deposit its entire list of e-journals to the Portico archive.
Taylor & Francis, an Informa business, is a leading international academic publisher whose book portfolio includes the imprints Taylor & Francis, Routledge, CRC Press, Garland Science, and Psychology Press.
The addition of Taylor & Francis’ titles brings the total number of e-books committed to the Portico archive to approximately 66,000. Beginning in 2011, Portico will expand the preservation services offered to libraries with the introduction of separate e-book and e-journal services. These distinct services will enable libraries to choose where to invest their preservation resources based on their collections, needs and budgets.
