Ex Libris Rosetta

Preserve your digital assets

In an era characterized by large quantities of material being developed in digital formats, electronic publications, multimedia files, Web sites, and blogs have become key components in the collections of academic and national libraries. In addition, a great deal of older non-electronic material is being digitized as part of ongoing efforts to improve conservation and accessibility.

Charged with preserving cumulative knowledge, national and academic libraries around the world are searching for a solution that will support the massive task of collecting and preserving digital material. To help these institutions fulfill their mission and ensure that scholarship and cultural assets remain accessible for future generations, Ex Libris offers a highly scalable, secure, and easily managed digital preservation system.

Connecting Past, Present, and Future

Leveraging the most current technologies, the Ex Libris Digital Preservation System enables institutions to preserve and provide access to the collections in their care, now and in the future.

  • Scalable: Built on a distributed architecture that can support multiple, flexible server configurations, the Digital Preservation System can scale up to manage digital collections of any size. By separating the working repository from the permanent one, it offers the security and redundancy required for the safety of these collections.

  • Functional: The Ex Libris Digital Preservation System can support the functional needs of institutions that receive vast numbers of digital items on an ongoing basis. Batch loads, staging areas, and multiple deposit hierarchies enable users to manage the ingestion of new material efficiently and effectively.

  • Flexible: Easy setup options allow institutions to configure the Digital Preservation System to support their unique requirements and adhere to governing bodies’ guidelines, when appropriate.

  • Standards-based: Based on the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) model and conforming to trusted digital repository (TDR) requirements, the Digital Preservation System provides institutions with the infrastructure and technology needed to preserve and facilitate access to the collections under their guardianship.

  • Accessible: Preserved digital entities are delivered via viewing applications for constantly evolving format types—supplied as part of the Digital Preservation System and third-party applications. Built-in integration capabilities enable the system to accept delivery requests from discovery and delivery applications such as the Ex Libris Primo® solution while ensuring that item-level access rights are enforced.
