Description: This projects is designing an architecture and building a toolkit for repository interoperability and preservation. The interoperability is based on a set of METS-profiles developed specifically for this architecture. The METS profiles utilize PREMIS objects for technical metadata and PREMIS events for provenance metadata. The initial release of our tool will support the ingest of our METS packages into the DSpace repository; we anticipate that additional repositories will be supported by subsequent versions of the toolkit with support for Eprints currently under development. The Web Archivists Workbench from OCLC also supports our METS profile as an output format.

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? METS, MODS, PREMIS, JHOVE, Java XmlBeans, Misc. Apache APIs,
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?
