Dear Rebecca Guenther,


I am also interested in joining this subgroup. At the National Library of the Netherlands we are currently implementing PREMIS, and though we do not yet have actual vocabularies to share, we would be happy to contribute to the development of controlled vocabularies for PREMIS.


With kind regards,

Lian Wintermans.

Onderwerp: [PIG] Controlled vocabularies subgroup


The PREMIS Editorial Committee would like to form a subgroup to work on the issue of controlled vocabularies. There are many semantic units in the PREMIS Data Dictionary that say the value should be taken from a controlled vocabulary. We are starting to use the Authorities and vocabularies web service at the Library of Congress to make these lists available and would like input from PREMIS implementers. A place has been set up on the PREMIS implementers' group wiki to collect such controlled vocabularies. See:

We encourage implementers to add their vocabularies here.


Please let me know if you are interested in joining this group. We will operate by email and teleconference (if necessary).
