PREMIS: Preservation Metadata Maintenance Activity

PREMIS: Preservation Metadata Maintenance Activity
The PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata is the international standard for metadata to support the preservation of digital objects and ensure their long-term usability. Developed by an international team of experts, PREMIS is implemented in digital preservation projects around the world, and support for PREMIS is incorporated into a number of commercial and open-source digital preservation tools and systems. The PREMIS Editorial Committee coordinates revisions and implementation of the standard, which consists of the Data Dictionary, an XML schema, and supporting documentation. Data Dictionaries & Schemas Maintenance Guidelines and Conformance Implementation and Tools Supporting Documentation The PREMIS maintenance activity is responsible for maintaining, supporting, and coordinating future revisions to the PREMIS data dictionary. and RLG The PREMIS 3.0 data dictionary was issued in June 2015.

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).

asbl - L'avenir par le numérique Autonomous eXchange packages for Interoperable Systems Jointly with the IASA-OK strategic taskforce (International Association for Sound and Audiovisual Archives – Organizing Knowledge), TITAN has conducted a 8 years of conceptual and prototyping research on a conceptual model coping with the evolution of the place of the archives in the digital semantic era; coping with the incorporation of the old analog archives and coping with the Internet of Things. The research started in 2006 by collaboration with the UNESCO in the Memories project consortium, one of whose objectives was to achieve such a conceptual model that could meet the real needs of the Memory of the World program. This conceptual model which corresponds to the original objectives and carries open implementations (partial or complete) has been developed in an Eureka CelticPlus Projects (MediaMap 2008/2011 & MediaMap + 2012/2014.)

Metadata Librarian Experience 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

The CIDOC CRM QA Focus Case Studies The QA Focus project published a series of case studies which provided examples of quality assurance procedures and illustrate how projects and services implement standards and best practices in order to achieve interoperability, maximise accessibility, etc. Case studies are available in the following areas: Note that if you wish to access all of the case studies in a single file (which is suitable for printing) you should go the the View-All links on this page. Note also that information on writing a case study is also available. RSS Feeds You should also note that RSS feeds of the case studies are available.

NewsML-G2 - IPTC News Exchange is … … a method of conveying not only the core news content, but also data that describe the content in an abstract way (i.e. metadata), information about how to handle news in an appropriate way (i.e. news management metadata), information about the packaging of news information, and finally information about the transfer of news content. NewsML-G2 provides exchange formats for: General news: textual news, articles, photos, graphics, audio and video can be exchanged – the News ItemA flexible mechanism for packaging news in a structured way – the Package ItemInformation about concepts, used for values in controlled vocabularies – the Concept Item – and further a format to exchange full controlled vocabularies as a single file – the Knowledge ItemA means to convey editorial planning to customers – the Planning Item A wrapper around items to transmit them by any electronic means – the News Message Exchanging News Exchanging Event Data and News Coverage Planning

How To Use HTML Meta Tags Want top search engine rankings? Just add meta tags and your website will magically rise to the top, right? Wrong. Meta tags are one piece in a large algorithmic puzzle that major search engines look at when deciding which results are relevant to show users who have typed in a search query. While there is still some debate about which meta tags remain useful and important to search engines, meta tags definitely aren't a magic solution to gaining rankings in Google, Bing, Yahoo, or elsewhere – so let's kill that myth right at the outset. However, meta tags help tell search engines and users what your site is about, and when meta tags are implemented incorrectly, the negative impact can be substantial and heartbreaking. Let's look at what meta tags are, what meta tags matter, and how to avoid mistakes when implementing meta tags on your website. What Are Meta Tags? HTML meta tags are officially page data tags that lie between the open and closing head tags in the HTML code of a document.
