    The Preservation Metadata Interest Group met during the 2016 ALA Annual Conference on Saturday, June 25, with 41 people in attendance. During a brief business meeting, the current co-chairs announced that Daniel Johnson (Digital Preservation Librarian, University of Iowa Libraries) would be serving as incoming co-chair from July 2016 - June 2018, replacing Drew Krewer as he rotates off leadership. A program followed which focused on current approaches to implementing preservation metadata. The program included two presentations:

    "The PREMIS of our not so SIMP-le story: Implementing preservation metadata using homegrown and vendor solutions" by Jeremy Myntti (Head of Digital Library Services, University of Utah) and Tawnya Keller (Interim Assistant Head, Digital Preservation, University of Utah)

    The University of Utah has implemented Ex Libris' Rosetta Digital Preservation System for the long-term preservation of digital assets. A large piece of this implementation has included the development of the SIMP Tool (Submission Information and Metadata Packaging Tool) used to streamline workflows from the digitization process to metadata creation to ingestion into both the digital asset management system and the digital preservation system. Intellectual Entities (IEs) have descriptive metadata attached to items in the SIMP Tool as well as minimal preservation metadata. When IEs are ingested into Rosetta from the SIMP Tool, Rosetta automates a majority of the preservation metadata and maintains this alongside the preservation master files. University of Utah is working towards meeting the NDSA digital preservation level 4 guideline which includes full preservation metadata in addition to the descriptive and technical metadata that is already being included in Rose tta. This presentation will include details about the system that has been developed and how it is being used in conjunction with Rosetta to preserve digital assets.

    "Preservation planning in the consortial context: Updates from the DPN Preservation Metadata Standards Working Group" by Moriah Caruso (Preservation Librarian, University of Washington), Drew Krewer (Digitization Services Coordinator, University of Houston), Jennifer Mullins (Digital Preservation Librarian, Dartmouth College), and Liz Woolcott (Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services, Utah State University)

    The Preservation Metadata Standards working group for the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) was charged to “outline the metadata standards that DPN will follow for digital preservation.” In this talk, the group will describe our work to date, share recommended baseline metadata for DPN deposit, and discuss next steps.
