This class builds on Introduction to Preservation Metadata by providing a walk-through of the PREMIS Data Dictionary. It reviews the information that is considered necessary within that standard to preserve digital assets and how they are recorded and used. It considers a range of implementation options and explores how different institutions have used the PREMIS semantic units in preservation systems.Learning Outcomes
