ROSA P is the National Transportation Library's Repository and Open Science Access Portal.  Members of the transportation community and the general public can access all the publications and linked open data NTL acquires, manages and preserves for their benefit. With ROSA P, users will find it easier to discover the wealth of transportation information in the repository. ROSA P also 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) using Islandora/Drupal/Fedora.  

The name ROSA P was chosen to honor the role public transportation played in the civil rights movement, and also one of the important figures, Rosa Parks.
