National Library of the Netherlands backs up Portico

Portico and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB), the National Library of the Netherlands (KB), have reached an agreement for an off-line copy of the Portico archive, which exceeds six million articles and 60 million files, to be held for safekeeping by the KB.

‘I am very pleased that Portico will work with the KB, an internationally-recognised leader in digital preservation, to strengthen the network of archives meeting the digital preservation challenge,’ said Eileen Fenton, executive director of Portico. Dr van Drimmelen, director general of the KB, said: ‘Preserving electronic scholarly publications is a key priority for the KB, and formalising this arrangement with Portico is a natural extension of the KB's active archival role.’
