Ex Libris joins the Open Preservation Foundation
The Open Preservation Foundation is pleased to welcome Ex Libris as its newest charter member.
Ex Libris’ Rosetta is an end-to-end digital asset management and preservation solution for libraries, archives, museums and other institutions, enabling institutions to safely and securely collect, manage, publish, deliver, and ensure longevity for digital information of many different types. With Rosetta’s unique content preservation planning module and its Format Library knowledge base, shared by the entire Rosetta community, institutions can identify format risks, evaluate mitigation alternatives, and select the best preservation actions.
As part of the Ex Libris family, Rosetta reflects Ex Libris involvement in industry standards and commitment to extensibility and open architecture. Ex Libris continually invests in supporting the community and in ensuring that its users will benefit from the latest industry and community developments.
Our membership of the Open Preservation Foundation is a natural move to further support the digital preservation community”, explains Adi Alter, Director of Product Management, Digital Solutions at Ex Libris. “Rosetta itself is based on an open architecture that allows customers to easily use Rosetta with external tools and plugins such as JHOVE and other open-source software. By supporting OPF, we can further improve open-source tools for the benefit of all
Barbara Sierman, chair of OPF comments: “We are delighted that Ex Libris are helping to support the digital preservation community. They made a valuable contribution to the JHOVE online hack day in April and we are pleased to formalise our relationship and to working together.”
Ex Libris joins Foundation members from archives, libraries, research institutions, universities, and service providers collaborating on shared solutions for effective and efficient digital preservation.
