Portico began working with libraries and scholarly publishers to preserve e-books in 2008. The years since have seen incredible growth in the scholarly e-book space and vastly increased coverage of e-books in digital preservation services. This webinar will explore lessons learned, challenges, and possible future directions for e-book preservation.
Topics will include:
The challenges of developing business models for a digital preservation market that is still evolving
Making sense of the multi-platform and aggregator space
How rights restrictions, format and technical issues, and access scenarios for e-books differ from journals.
The webinar will also delve into how Portico is building its e-book holdings, pricing models, and what the priorities are for growth.
This is the third in a series of CRL webinars examining the benefits, capabilities and possibilities of the Portico digital preservation service.
