Ex Libris’ Rosetta Day in London, Thursday 19th July 2012 – UCL Wilkins Building

  • The issue of the preservation of cumulative knowledge has become an increasingly present topic in recent years due to the increasing quantity of electronically generated and digitised material which is being produced, the decreasing lifecycles of such information, as well as the continual evolution of digital formats. Additionally, the preservation of primary research data has become a hot topic, with numerous key funding bodies now insisting that applications are accompanied by a preservation plan. Ex Libris’ Rosetta, developed in partnership with the National Library of New Zealand and with the on-going input of an international peer review group, provides you with the solution to these issues. Rosetta is a runaway success with academic institutions and national libraries that have recognised the need to preserve and provide access to their resources. Its scalability, full preservation planning and action module, and strengths in the field of research data preservation are just a few reasons why the German National Library of Science & Technology (TIB) and the ETH Zurich in Switzerland, as well as numerous other institutions worldwide, have chosen Rosetta.
