The library has selected Ex Libris Rosetta to replace its DigiTool digital asset management system.
Ex Libris, a global provider of cloud-based solutions for higher education, says the library sought a system that would enable it to collect, manage, and preserve digital assets, and would integrate with the library’s other core systems and provide a smooth migration pathway.
State Library Victoria chief executive Kate Torney said, “The State Library has always been about providing the greatest number of people with free, open access to information. Our transition to Rosetta is the next step in making our collections available in a broad and meaningful way.”
“Rosetta will be a crucial part of an integrated offering enabling all library patrons to discover, access, and use the library's growing digital collection, now and in the future.”
Ziv BenZvi, vice-president of Ex Libris Asia Pacific, said, “We are thrilled to welcome State Library Victoria to the Rosetta community. The integrated functions of digital collection, management, and preservation that Rosetta provides will help the State Library’s collections continue to grow while enlightening Victorians and visitors alike.”
