Portico-Protecting the Library’s Investment in E-Journals

 Do you use the electronic journals available through the Library? Ever wonder what happens when a publisher goes out of business or drops a journal from its publications? Rod Library seeks to protect its investment in electronic journals and make purchased content available on an ongoing basis through its participation in Portico, an electronic archiving service. Portico provides a permanent archive of electronic scholarly journals issued by almost 200 contributing publishers. Campus-wide access to archived content becomes available to participating institutions when certain "trigger events" occur, and when titles are no longer available from the publisher or another source. Trigger events include: a publisher stops operations; a publisher ceases to publish a title; a publisher no longer offers back issues; or a publisher's delivery platform suffers "catastrophic and sustained failure." Portico also provides a means of securing perpetual access should a participating publisher choose to designate it as a provider of post-cancellation access.
