Ex Libris Announces the Launch of Rosetta 3.0
Ex Libris Group announced the release of version 3.0 of the Rosetta digital preservation system, which provides a new user interface, advanced search options, a collection management module, and other management and preservation features.
Highlights of the new version include the following:
- Collection Management module: This new module enables each institution to organize and manage collections in the most effective way for the institution’s specific requirements. With version 3, collections can contain a number of subcollections, each with its own descriptive metadata record and access rights policy. With Rosetta’s flexible approach to collection management, digital objects can belong to more than one collection. To learn more about the Collection Management technology, read the Ex Libris white paper Collection Support in Rosetta.
- Advanced search: In version 3.0, new search capabilities enable Rosetta to index all metadata elements associated with digital objects, enabling users to search these elements. Many more attributes are displayed by default with the search results, and users can select specific attributes to be displayed.
- Redesigned user interface: The user interface has received a comprehensive makeover to help Rosetta users achieve their goals more rapidly and easily.
- Format library updates: Rosetta’s format library enables institutions to maintain the most appropriate and advanced format for each item in their Rosetta system. Up to now, updates were installed through the periodic synchronization of each local format library with the global format library. In Rosetta 3, regularly issued service packs will contain the updates for the local format library.
“Version 3.0 demonstrates our commitment to meeting the needs of academic and research institutions,” commented Bar Weinstein, vice president of resource management solutions at Ex Libris. “Originally envisioned as a preservation solution primarily for cultural heritage organizations, national libraries, and archives, Rosetta has become the solution of choice for leading academic institutions worldwide. This version is the outcome of our close collaboration with the flourishing Rosetta community to identify the essential features for enhancing the product.”
