NTL Launches New Public Access Repository ROSA P

Friday, November 3, 2017

Friday, November 3, 2017 - The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Transportation Library (NTL) in the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) has launched ROSA P (Repository and Open Science Access Portal), a new public repository for NTL’s collection of over 30,000 items. Members of the transportation community and the general public can use ROSA P for all the open data and publications NTL acquires, manages and preserves for their benefit. ROSA P offers NTL users a better, more useful and more reliable experience. First, ROSA P features improved search and discovery by using revised metadata. Second, ROSA P offers the promise of reliable, long-term access to this content, as it is built on the Stacks open source platform developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Third, NTL is assigning persistent, unique Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) to each object in the repository to ensure that each item in the repository will always have a distinct and unchanging means of finding it.  Media contact: Dave Smallen, (202) 366-5568,
