HORSHAM, Pa. -- November 11, 2013

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.”
