T2C: Implementing PREMIS to Support Digital Preservation
May 16, 2011 1:15 – 5:30 PM
Instructors: Priscilla Caplan, Florida Center for Library Automation,
Rebecca Guenther, US Library of Congress
Kate Zwaard, US Government Printing Office
The course provides an overview of the status of the PREMIS Data Dictionary for
Preservation Metadata with a particular focus on implementation issues. PREMIS has
become the de-facto standard for metadata to support the long-term preservation of
digital objects. As PREMIS has matured in its development, practical use of the data
dictionary in repository systems has resulted in revisions and enhancements. This
course describes changes to the PREMIS Data Dictionary and data model; discusses
issues that institutions are confronting in implementing it; and shows tools for, and
case studies of, PREMIS implementation. Ample time will be given for discussion,
and participants are encouraged to contribute their experience in planning or executing
an implementation program.
This course enables the attendee to:
Anyone involved in selecting, designing, planning, or implementing a preservation project or repository using preservation metadata. Basic knowledge of preservation metadata and PREMIS in particular is assumed.
