We would like to invite you to participate in a research study whose main
goal is to identify and understand factors affecting adoption of
PREservation Metadata Implementation Strategies (PREMIS) in cultural
heritage institutions. The online survey questionnaire contains 18 questions
and would take about 15 minutes to complete.

You will be asked to indicate various factors and rate the importance of
each factor and the role it played in influencing your decision-making
processes. Your co-operation in providing the information will be invaluable
in ensuring a true picture is formed. Your response will be recorded
anonymously and findings will be summarized in aggregated form to protect
the identity of participating individuals and institutions.

If your institution has implemented (or plans to implement) PREMIS, we
specifically encourage you to participate in the study. Results of this
study may benefit cultural heritage institutions in making more conscious
decisions regarding adoption of preservation metadata in general. To
participate in this online survey please go to:

Please feel free to forward this to colleagues you think might be
interested. Should you have any questions or desire further information,
please contact Daniel Gelaw Alemneh at: [log in to unmask]

Thanks in advance for your participation. Your response is highly valued and
