Rosetta Product Working Group


The purpose and role of the Rosetta Working Group:

  • To provide a forum for information sharing, discussion and collaborative analysis and assessment of the development of Rosetta.
  • Provide expert advice and guidance to Ex Libris to ensure that development of Rosetta is aligned with current international best practice for digital preservation.
  • Ensure Rosetta development continues to meet the needs of the Rosetta user community and potential new customers.
  • Expand collaboration within the Rosetta community, as well as with other digital preservation practitioners.

The Rosetta Working Group currently has 3 subgroups to manage the enhancement and development of specific aspects of shared operational practice.

  • Digital Preservation Working Group – focuses on issues relating to the format library function of Rosetta and practices of long-term digital preservation and digital archiving.
  • Delivery & Integrations Working Group – focuses on issues related to traditional ideas of digital asset management such as delivery and access rights.
  • Systems Operation Working Group – focus on issues relating to the way Rosetta operates and how data moves through the system.
