Description: The OAIS reference model is one of NSIDC's guiding documents as an archive. Several years ago, we decided to use the OAIS reference model in developing a schema for storing preservation information about our science data sets - we already are NASA DIF and FGDC-compliant in that regard. In the meantime, the PREMIS group came out with their schema. As an experiment, since implementation was still ongoing, we chose to make our schema PREMIS compliant.

Implementation Details:
What repository workflows or functions does your PREMIS Metadata support?  
What PREMIS data module entities are represented in your implementation?  
How is preservation metadata stored in your repository?  
What ancillary resources and tools do you use to support your PREMIS implementation? We have developed schema extensions to our central data catalog, along with web-based tools for population.
Is your preservation metadata created internally, imported from external sources, or both?  
Is your preservation metadata used only internally or is it shared with external organizations?
