Subject: [Digipres] Real-life tales of using PREMIS - Intellectual Access to Preservation Metadata Interest Group Program at ALA Annual

Apologies for any cross-posting

Please join the Intellectual Access to Preservation Metadata Interest
Group for a presentation on the latest in PREMIS implementation at ALA
Annual 2011 in New Orleans. It will be followed by a question and
answer session with our panelists and a brief business meeting to
elect the new interest group vice-chair.

Real-life tales of using PREMIS
Date: Saturday, June 25, 2011
Time: 8-10 a.m.
Location: Morial Convention Center, MCC-Rm 284

Know you should be collecting preservation metadata but donít know
where to start? Heard of the PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation
Metadata and want to learn more about it? This session will address
both of these questions. Rebecca Guenther, Senior Networking &
Standards Specialist at the
Library of Congress, will provide a brief overview of PREMIS. Two
PREMIS implementation examples will then be presented. Peter Van
Garderen, President/Systems Archivist at Artefactual Systems Inc. will
offer a first-hand account of PREMIS implementation in Archivematica.
Archivematica is a comprehensive open source digital preservation
system in compliance with the OAIS functional model. The system uses
METS, PREMIS, Dublin Core and other best practice metadata standards.
It is being developed in partnership with City of Vancouver Archives,
UNESCO Memory of the World, and the University of British Columbia
Library. Andrew Hart, Head of the Preservation Department at the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will then share an
example of implementing PREMIS for the Carolina Digital Repository,
UNC-Chapel Hill's institutional repository using Fedora and iRODS.

Presenters: Rebecca Guenther, Senior Networking & Standards Specialist
at the Library of Congress ; Peter Van Garderen , President/Systems
Archivist at Artefactual Systems Inc. ; Andrew Hart, Head,
Preservation Department, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
