Transportation Librarians Roundtable: Repository and Open Science Access Portal (ROSA P)

Leighton Christiansen
Data Curator, National Transportation Library

Bob Cullen
Information Resource Manager, AASHTO

The staff of the National Transportation Library (NTL) would like to introduce you to their new digital repository, the Repository and Open Science Access Portal, affectionately known as ROSA P. ROSA P will replace the current NTL repository in the coming weeks. But before that can happen, the NTL staff would like show off the look and feel of ROSA P to the transportation library community. Plus, the NTL staff is inviting you, as the main group of future users of ROSA P, to participate in testing the new software during this soft launch phase. Details on how to become a volunteer user-tester will be given during the TLR.

The Transportation Librarians Roundtable (TLR), a monthly web conference series, is an initiative of the National Transportation Library (NTL), co-sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Transportation Research Board, and the Special Libraries Association's Transportation Division.

The TLR's purpose is to provide transportation librarians with opportunities to learn more about issues of mutual concern and interest and also to have a new means of regular communication among members of that community.
