Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. (www.reedtech.com), part of the LexisNexis family, today announced an agreement with the Archive-It service at the Internet Archive to jointly market and sell Archive-It, and continue to support the growing community of organizations currently using the service. The agreement combines the commercial archiving experience and resources of Reed Tech with the breadth and depth of the Internet Archive, the largest publicly available web archive in existence and the foremost provider of web archiving services for the cultural heritage marketplace.

First launched at the Internet Archive in early 2006, Archive-It has been providing a sophisticated and flexible solution to a broad range of organizations and institutions focused on creating and managing collections of web content. The service has a core mission of ensuring the availability and access of curated web collections specifically developed to provide continuous, open and multi-generational access.

Affiliating with the team at Reed Tech, Archive-It will materially expand its capacity to meet the steadily growing and often unique needs of the cultural heritage market. The Archive-It and Reed Tech teams will be working closely to broaden visibility including expanded access to a broader range of organizations and a diverse set of use cases.

"The Archive-It team is excited to collaborate with Reed Tech in ways that we think will benefit our existing and future partner organization base," said Kristine Hanna, Director of Archiving Services at Internet Archive. "Our communities' goals and objectives always come first; and as their web archiving needs become more nuanced and comprehensive, we want to continue to deliver an effective and reliable solution that meets those needs - now and in the future. Joining forces with an organization like Reed Tech allows us to do just that."

"Reed Tech is honored to be engaged in the alliance supporting and expanding the Archive-It mission to deliver world class digital collection and access services to a worldwide portfolio of clients," said Dave Ballai, CIO/VP commercial solutions at Reed Tech. "The business combination expands the range of capabilities for further developing and delivering the Archive-It service to a steadily growing array of cultural heritage institutions."
