Ex Libris' Rosetta is the digital preservation application used by our digital repository, the National Digital Heritage Archive (NDHA). Rosetta is the core of the NDHA's digital preservation infrastructure.

Rosetta a scalable, secure and complex digital preservation application

Rosetta is standards-based, commercial application developed in partnership with Ex Libris Group, a library management systems vendor.

Rosetta is designed to provide ingest, access and preservation functionalities for the National Library’s digital collections.

Rosetta allows us to manage our digital collections end-to-end, from submission to dissemination. The system is built on distributed architecture that can support multiple, flexible server and application configurations providing scalability while meeting our unique digital preservation requirements.

Rosetta is integrated with various deposit and metadata extraction tools, as well as Resource Management systems currently in use by the Library, such as Ex Libris’ Alma and Tiaki (eMU).
