Abstract:

The research of the future requires access to the research of the past. This access cannot be assured without reliable long-term preservation of scholarly digital content. Near-term access can be guaranteed with backup and access system redundancy. Mid-term access can be protected with byte replication. But assurance of long-term access requires digital preservation – the series of management policies and activities necessary to ensure the enduring usability, authenticity, discoverability, and accessibility of content over the very long term. Portico, with a mission to preserve scholarly digital content, is one organization providing such long-term digital preservation.
