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:

  • Learn about the status of the development of this standard
  • Understand the interoperability of PREMIS with other standards
  • Define data model issues
  • Illustrate some specific implementations of PREMIS in digital repositories
  • Gain knowledge of the tools for creating and transforming PREMIS metadata
  • Review controlled vocabularies in PREMIS
  • Introduce the use of PREMIS as Linked Data


Intended audience:

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.
