Description: Primarily for NCAR researchers, administration and staff, and the scholarly community in the atmospheric sciences.
Start Date: 0000-00-00
Notes: We have been looking to PREMIS to guide us in our digital preservation efforts. We do not currently have any implementation of PREMIS data elements.
Implementation Details:
What repository workflows or functions does your PREMIS Metadata support? We are interested in PREMIS primarily for dealing with issues such as file authenticity/integrity and format validation and migration.
What PREMIS data module entities are represented in your implementation? Were we to implement PREMIS, we would implement the Object module first.
How is preservation metadata stored in your repository? We do not currently store preservation metadata. Our descriptive metadata is stored in XML, and any preservation metadata implementation would likely be stored in XML as well.
What ancillary resources and tools do you use to support your PREMIS implementation? Controlled Vocabularies Tools So far the only tool we have looked at is JHOVE Extension Schemas Registries
Is your preservation metadata created internally, imported from external sources, or both? In the implementation we are currently considering, our preservation metadata would be created internally.
Is your preservation metadata used only internally or is it shared with external organizations? In the implementation we are currently considering, our preservation metadata would be for internal use.
