ProQuest Partners with Iron Mountain for PAL

Sep 08, 2006

ProQuest Information and Learning has announced a partnership with Iron Mountain Incorporated, a provider of information protection and storage services, to introduce the PAL Archive Program. Through this initiative ProQuest will deposit its Perpetual Access Licensed (PAL) content offsite in Iron Mountain's vaults to serve PAL customers who seek the security of a third-party storage option. ProQuest will deposit all perpetual access content--including images, ASCII, and metadata--in Iron Mountain vaults via the Company's Intellectual Property Management services. ProQuest will deposit all existing PAL content and will make regular deposits of new content. ProQuest PAL customers can participate in this third-party archive by contacting their ProQuest sales representative.
