Intro to Preservation Metadata
4-week Course Starts Apr 29, 2019
This course provides an overview of preservation metadata, focusing specifically on the PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata, an international standard used to record metadata relating to digital preservation. PREMIS is used widely throughout the library, archive, and museum community, and has been integrated into many existing digital preservation tools.
This course will begin with a focus on the PREMIS data dictionary itself, independent of implementation format. The course will then explore the implementation of PREMIS using XML. Participants will finish this course with a clear understanding of how they can use PREMIS to support digital preservation in their own collections.
