Gale, part of Cengage Learning and a leading publisher of research and reference resources for libraries, schools and businesses, and Portico, a not-for-profit digital preservation service, today announced an extension of their relationship to preserve the majority of Gale’s remaining digital archives. Among those to be preserved and added to Portico’s D-Collection Service are The Times Digital Archive, Slavery & Anti-Slavery (Parts I-IV), State Papers Online (Parts I-IV) and the entire back file of Archives Unbound, which accounts for more than 150 topically-focused archives.

The organizations have previously worked together to preserve a number of Gale’s earlier digital collections, and, with this extension to their agreement, Portico will effectively be preserving all remaining Gale-produced collections. When the project is completed, more than 1.5 million documents amounting to more than 150 million pages, from 65 Gale Digital Collections and 150 Archives Unbound collections will have been preserved in the Portico archive. These new collections represent a wide range of content types, including monographs, newspapers, journals, manuscripts, photographs and letters, dating from the 1400’s through the 21st Century.

“We are excited to continue working with Portico as we complete our preservation of the vast amounts of information held within Gale’s many digital collections,” said Jim Draper, vice president and general manager, Gale. “We are proud of the quality and content within our collections, and have invested many years into delivering the highest quality digital products to our customers. We are pleased that we can now be sure that our content will be accessible well into the future.”

“By preserving all of their digital collections with Portico, Gale is implementing a comprehensive digital preservation strategy for their library customers, and future students and researchers,” added Kate Wittenberg, managing director, Portico. “We are delighted to expand our work with Gale to preserve this highly valued content for the long term.

In accordance with Portico’s D-Collection Service model, Portico will make the content available to Gale’s customers under specifically defined circumstances called “trigger events.” Should the content no longer be made available through the Gale system or from other sources, or if Gale were to experience an extended service interruption, Portico will make the content preserved in the archive available to Gale’s customers. There is no charge from Gale to its customers for this service.

“The relationship between Gale and Portico represents a critical service for the library community and the future of scholarship,” commented Robert Wolven, associate university librarian for Bibliographic Services and Collection Development, Columbia University Libraries. “We could not be more pleased to see this kind of progress on digital preservation.”
