Implementation Details:
What repository workflows or functions does your PREMIS Metadata support? PREMIS metadata are encapsulated in a METS file. This METS file is validated by JHOVE that produces a complete set of standardized information. It also generates a submission ingestion package that is being evaluated with the aim to store preservation information in an OAIS repository.
What PREMIS data module entities are represented in your implementation? Object, Agent, Event, Rights
How is preservation metadata stored in your repository? XML
What ancillary resources and tools do you use to support your PREMIS implementation? Controlled Vocabularies PREMIS data dictionary Tools JHOVE + PREMIS in METS Toolbox Extension Schemas XML Registries
Is your preservation metadata created internally, imported from external sources, or both? It is imported from external sources because PREMIS implementation is required in digitization processes and providers must deliver a whole digital object that includes MARC XML, DC (for OAI-PMH purposes), METSRights and PREMIS. Descriptive, technical and preservation metadata are encapsulated in a METS file.
Is your preservation metadata used only internally or is it shared with external organizations? Internally
