Real-life tales of using PREMIS at ALA Annual 2011
Know you should be collecting preservation metadata but don’t know where to start? Have you heard of the (PREMIS) Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata and want to learn more about it? This session will address both of these questions.
Rebecca Guenther, Senior Networking & Standards Specialist at the Library of Congress, will provide a brief overview of PREMIS. Two PREMIS implementation examples will then be presented. Peter Van Garderen, President/Systems Archivist at Artefactual Systems Inc. will offer a first-hand account of PREMIS implementation in Archivematica. Archivematica is a comprehensive open source digital preservation system in compliance with the OAIS functional model. The system uses METS, PREMIS, Dublin Core and other best practice metadata standards. It is being developed in partnership with City of Vancouver Archives, UNESCO Memory of the World, and the University of British Columbia Library. Andrew Hart, Head of the Preservation Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will then share an example of implementing PREMIS for the Carolina Digital Repository, UNC-Chapel Hill's institutional repository using Fedora and iRODS.
Please join the Intellectual Access to Preservation Metadata Interest Group for a presentation on the latest in PREMIS implementation. It will be followed by an ample question and answer session and a brief business meeting to elect the new interest group vice-chair.
Presenters: Rebecca Guenther, Senior Networking & Standards Specialist at the Library of Congress; Peter Van Garderen, President/Systems Archivist at Artefactual Systems Inc.; Andrew Hart, Head, Preservation Department, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
