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).

DCMI Metadata Terms This document is an up-to-date, authoritative specification of all metadata terms maintained by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative. Included are the fifteen terms of the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, which have also been published as IETF RFC 5013 [RFC5013], ANSI/NISO Standard Z39.85-2007 [NISOZ3985], and ISO Standard 15836:2009 [ISO15836]. Each term is specified with the following minimal set of attributes: Where applicable, the following attributes provide additional information about a term: This release of DCMI Metadata Terms reflects changes described more fully in the document "Maintenance changes to DCMI Metadata Terms" [REVISIONS].

SDMX ? Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange 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
