Technical Metadata for Text (textMD) Official Web Site (Standards, Library of Congress) textMD is a XML Schema that details technical metadata for text-based digital objects. It most commonly serves as an extension schema used within the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Schema (METS) administrative metadata section. However, it could also exist as a standalone document. textMD can be used within the PREMIS element <objectCharacteristicsExtension>, as an extension for format-specific metadata within the PREMIS preservation metadata XML Schema versions 2.0 and 2.1. The textMD schema allows for detailing properties such as: encoding information (quality, platform, software, agent) character information (character set and size, byte order and size, line terminators) languages fonts markup information processing and textual notes technical requirements for printing and viewing page ordering and sequencing ↑ Back to top ↑ News textMD was originally created by the New York University Digital Library Team (NYU), and had been maintained by NYU through the current version (2.2).

AudioMD and VideoMD - Technical Metadata for Audio and Video (Standards, Library of Congress) audioMD and videoMD are XML Schemas that detail technical metadata for audio- and video-based digital objects. They often serve as extension schemas within the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS) administrative metadata section or in PREMIS version 2.0 or later in <objectCharacteristicsExtension>. They are also suitable for use as standalone metadata documents or may be considered for incorporation into other structures, e.g., as embedded metadata in Material eXchange Format (MXF) files. The audioMD schema allows for detailing properties such as: physical format for media-dependent materials (e.g., open reel tape, DAT, instantaneous disc) track format for magnetic tape recordings groove type for analog discs speed and speed adjustment for analog materials number of channels and sound channel map sampling frequency and bits per sample for digital recordings audio data encoding for digital materials file format name and version for media independent digital materials

La Tribune des Archives Référentiel métier : la profession d'archiviste ou les métiers des archives Archiviste est un métier qui a connu plus d’évolution ces trente der­niè­res années que depuis son appa­ri­tion cons­ciente au XIXe siècle. Cette pro­fes­sion, qui étudie et donne à com­pren­dre le contexte de pro­duc­tion de l’infor­ma­tion géné­rée par une acti­vité, est passée d’une vision essen­tiel­le­ment patri­mo­niale à une saisie glo­bale de la pro­duc­tion docu­men­taire depuis son ori­gine. L’archi­viste doit faire chaque jour preuve d’une sou­plesse d’esprit et d’une adap­ta­bi­lité qui font de lui un acteur essen­tiel du fonc­tion­ne­ment de la trans­pa­rence et de la mémoire des orga­ni­sa­tions qui l’emploient, et par là-même, il cons­ti­tue un rouage majeur de la société moderne. Exemple pour le clas­se­ment : Savoir : Cadre légis­la­tif et régle­men­taire appli­ca­ble aux éliminations Appliquer un tableau de ges­tion, un plan de clas­se­ment Connaître le cadre de clas­se­ment et son appli­ca­tion sur la cota­tion Savoir-faire : Appliquer le prin­cipe du res­pect des fonds
