For libraries facing the task of planning for the future of their print holdings—especially serials holdings—Portico offers several tools to support due diligence. The new tools enable comparison of library holdings to titles archived in Portico, to determine with confidence and precision the completeness of archived content.

Amy Kirchhoff from Portico will briefly demonstrate some of these tools, explain how they work, and enlist webinar participants' thoughts on how to improve and add value to these tools. For reference in relation to the presentation, a list of these tools is attached, as well as an extensive Portico Dashboard Guide.

This is the second in a series of four CRL webinars examining the benefits, capabilities and possibilities of the Portico digital preservation service. The first webinar, “Pursuing the ‘Long Tail’ of Elusive Publishers,” discussed Portico priorities and targets for growth, and explored how to better align those priorities with CRL member library priorities. 

CRL hosts webinars throughout the year. Participation is open to all librarians, staff, and faculty at CRL member institutions. Most are recorded and available for later access. Additional information on accessing CRL webinars can be found under Membership.
