Description: Focussing on the papers of contemporary politicians, the Paradigm project is exploring the issues surrounding the preservation of born-digital personal papers to ensure that they continue to be accessible to the researchers of the future. The project is testing various tools, including Fedora and DSpace, and will develop exemplar strategies and best-practice guidelines that will be of use to any institution which collects, preserves and maintains access to private papers.

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? Testing various tools such as Jhove and the National Library of New Zealand Metadata Extraction Tool. Also using Fedora, which wraps supplied XML metadata and Fedora-generated metadata in its native FoXML but can export this metadata as METS files.
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?
