Tools for preservation metadata implementation

This document links to PREMIS' COPTR page which contains information about tools (e.g. software, scripts, stylesheets) which support the implementation of preservation metadata, particularly as defined in the PREMIS data dictionary. Tools listed were not necessarily developed specifically for PREMIS, but may be used for implementation of preservation metadata more generally, and their purpose is stated. Tools may be categorized as doing one or more of the following:

  • Tools for extracting technical metadata from objects
  • Tools for converting extracted metadata into the PREMIS XML schema elements
  • Tools for generating a METS object with appropriate slots for PREMIS metadata
  • Tools for converting Jhove output to PREMIS elements
  • Tools for recording events and outcomes (e.g. format validation, fixity check, etc.)
