Wiley to preserve E-Books in Portico
"Portico has announced that John Wiley & Sons has entered into an archive license agreement to preserve its collection of more than 8,000 online scholarly monographs. With this agreement, Wiley expands its relationship with Portico, which began in 2006 with Wiley's commitment to deposit their entire list of e-journals to the Portico archive. Wiley joins De Gruyter, Duke University Press, Elsevier, Palgrave Macmillan, SPIE, and Springer in participating in Portico's e-book preservation service, which was introduced to scholarly publishers in mid-2008. The addition of Wiley's 8,000 titles brings the total number of e-books committed to the Portico archive to more than 43,000"
