Vital. Seamless online search of your library’s digital content.
Vital is a digital object repository and management system designed for universities, libraries, museums, archives, and information centers. It is designed to provide seamless online search and retrieval of information for administrative staff, contributing faculty, and end-users.
Broader Resource Access
Provide resources digitally that were once only available at a single location and to a finite number of patrons. By eliminating the limitations traditionally encountered by information seekers, this technology grants access to materials for all authorized end users, from professional researchers to recreational learners.
Handles Large Text and Rich Content with Ease
Vital provides every feature required for ingesting, storing, indexing, cataloging, searching, and retrieving. Vital takes advantage of technology standards such as XML, TEI, EAD, MODS, MADS, and Dublin Core to easily describe and index an assortment of electronic resources.
Conforms to Common Internet Data Communications Standards
Vital conforms to TCP/IP, HTTP/HTTPS, SRU, SOAP, and FTP. Additional standards supported with Vital and the Fedora Object Repository include OAI-PMH, MARCXML, and MIX (Metadata for Images in XML Schema).

Highlighted repository content
Highlight special collections by choosing up to six repository objects for inclusion in a Home page slideshow.

Google Indexing and Exposure
Vital facilitates the exposure of repository content to Google via a MARCXML to XHTML conversion of metadata.

International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF)
Vital offers support for the Presentation and Image APIs as well as an Image server. Vital’s image viewer is IIIF compliant.

Administrative Reporting
Vital provides administrators with a robust toolkit to perform reporting against repository content.

Native format content
When you import image, text, sound, video, and other digital files, basic metadata and XML content is created dynamically based on MIME-Type.

Metadata Synchronization
Vital objects contain a Dublin Core descriptive metadata datastream for indexing, searching, harvesting, and as source metadata for gathering citations.
