> 1) A short description of the METS application
The Florida Digital Archive (FDA) is a long-term preservation repository
for digital materials in support of teaching and learning, scholarship,
and research in the state of Florida. The FDA uses locally developed
software, called DAITSS, for ingest, management, and dissemination of
digital materials, and for implementing preservation strategies based on
reformatting (normalization, localization and forward migration). METS
is used as a SIP descriptor (to describe information packages submitted
for archiving), as an AIP descriptor (to describe information packages
stored in the repository), and as a DIP descriptor (to describe
information packages disseminated from the repository).
