    Introducing the Rosetta System

    The Rosetta system is designed to enable effective preservation of, and access to, digital heritage collections. With the Rosetta system, large amounts of digital data, including audio, video, and text content, can be stored and managed.
    Rosetta enables various content providers to deposit content and make it available to library staff, the public, or to specific content consumers. To ensure the preservation of only high-quality, appropriate content, Rosetta provides various tools for managing content and content providers. Libraries have the option of storing material indefinitely or for a specified amount of time and then deleting it (tentatively or permanently).
    Rosetta is a Web application that can be accessed using current Web browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. End-user interfaces such a library’s Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) or an application such as Primo or Voyager can be integrated with Rosetta to provide access to repository objects for external content consumers.
    This guide describes the architecture of the Rosetta system, explains the types of system users, and provides a glossary of terms.
