UAL is an Archive Founder member of Portico. As detailed on the Portico website, "Portico
provides libraries and publishers with a reliable, cost-effective solution to one of the most critical
challenges facing the scholarly community today - ensuring that the electronic resources you rely
on everyday will be accessible to future researchers, scholars, and students.We preserve tens of
thousands of e-journals, e-books, and d-collections (digitized historical collections) and are
adding more content to the archive everyday. Libraries and publishers experience benefits from
the Portico service from day one and can be confident that they will have access to their most
valued content in the future."
