ABSTRACT
An interview with Eileen Fenton, executive director of Portico company, is presented. She asserts that its mission is to preserve scholarly literature so that it can be accessed over time. She reveals that they offer customised reports to libraries that compare the archive's holdings to a library's local holdings or subscriptions. She expresses that there are big challenges with preserving databases because they are dynamic, not static.
