  • System Requirements:
    You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A. Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't 100% reliable.
    Please check your system in advance to make sure it meets the Cisco WebEx requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure that your system is properly set up before each webinar begins.

About the Webinar

Over the past decade, as the scholarly community’s reliance on e-content has increased, so too has the development of preservation-related digital repositories. The need for descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata for each digital object in a preservation repository was clearly recognized by digital archivists and curators. However, in the early 2000’s, most of the published specifications for preservation-related metadata were either implementation specific or broadly theoretical. In 2003, the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) and Research Libraries Group (RLG) established an international working group called PREMIS (Preservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies) to develop a common core set of metadata elements for digital preservation. The first version of the PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata and its supporting XML schema was issued in 2005. Experience using its specifications in preservation repositories has led to several revisions, with the completion of a version 2.0 in 2008. The Data Dictionary is now in version 2.2 (July 2012), and it is widely implemented in preservation repositories throughout the world in multiple domains.

Please attend NISO's webinar on Preservation Metadata to hear viewpoints and updates from industry leaders on theory and practice.

Agenda

Introduction
Todd Carpenter, Managing Director, NISO

Rebecca Guenther, Consultant and Standards Specialist at the Library of Congress, served as the co-chair of PREMIS and will outline the types of information that should be associated with an archived digital object and how these translated into the development of the PREMIS data dictionary and corresponding XML schema.

Amy Kirchhoff, Archive Service Manager, Portico, will describe how Portico's digital preservation repositories have applied the PREMIS standard.

  • Registrants will receive detailed instructions about accessing the webinar via e-mail the Monday prior to the event. (Anyone registering between Monday and the close of registration will receive the message shortly after the registration is received, within normal business hours.) Due to the widespread use of spam blockers, filters, out of office messages, etc., it is your responsibility to contact the NISO office if you do not receive login instructions before the start of the webinar.

  • Registration is per site (access for one computer) and includes access to the online recorded archive of the webinar. You may have as many people as you like from the registrant's organization view the webinar from that one connection. If you need additional connections, you will need to enter a separate registration for each connection needed.

  • If you are registering someone else from your organization, either use that person's e-mail address when registering or contact the NISO office to provide alternate contact information.

  • Library Standards Alliance (LSA) members receive one free webinar connection as part of their membership. You do not need to register for the event for this free connection. Your webinar contact will receive the login instructions the Monday before the event. You may have as many people as you like from the member's library view the webinar from that one connection. If you need additional connections beyond the free one, then you will need to enter a paid registration (at the member rate) for each additional connection required.

  • Webinar presentation slides and Q&A will be posted to the site following the live webinar.

  • Registrants and LSA member webinar contacts will receive an e-mail message containing access information to the archived webinar recording within 48 hours after the event. This recording access is only to be used by the registrant's or member's organization.
