Many thanks to those that have already responded to this request. This is a reminder that if you are implementing PREMIS within your organization/activity I would love to hear from you (please see note below for modified request and instructions). I hope to receive responses by June 1 (tomorrow). Please keep in mind that information you provide will ultimately be used to update the PREMIS Implementation Registry.


Thanks again. I appreciate your time.

Subject: PREMIS Implementation Request




My name is Monique Lowe. I am working on behalf of the PREMIS Editorial Committee on a research project that will look into the current state of PREMIS implementation. The ultimate goal of my research will be to update the PREMIS Implementation Registry (http://www.loc.gov/standards/premis/premis-registry.php) and to begin accumulating an evidence base for PREMIS implementation by gathering some examples. Updating the registry and accumulating an evidence-base of PREMIS implementation examples should be a valuable resource for projects and institutions considering a PREMIS data dictionary implementation within their own archival system.


I would like to gather some basic information about PREMIS implementations in the digital preservation community. If you are implementing PREMIS, or are considering implementing PREMIS, at your institution, I would appreciate it if you could send me a note including:


Organization Name (e.g. OCLC, California Digital Library, Library of Congress)

Organization Type (e.g. library, archive, museum, etc.)

Activity Name (i.e. name of project, department, business unit, service, etc.)

Content Type (e.g. images, text, audio, video, born digital, digitized, etc.)

Activity Description (brief description)

Activity Target Audience (i.e. designated community, e.g. scholarly community, general public, etc.)

Activity Source/Website (activity website preferred over a public access website if possible)

PREMIS Implementation Status (e.g. "Active" for a current or active implementation, "Under Development" for those in the planning stages)


Beyond this information, I’d also like to know if you are willing to have further contact (likely via e-mail) about some of the details of your PREMIS implementation. If so, please provide information about the best way to contact you.


Please reply directly to me (off-list) at [log in to unmask]. I’d be grateful if you could respond by Wednesday, June 1,  2011.


Many thanks in advance. I look forward to hearing from you.
