Dear PREMIS Editorial Committee,I'm involved in SCAPE project (http://www.scape-project.eu/) and oneof the tasks of our project is to create a Preservation Watchcomponent (Watch) that, besides other things, will monitor theactivity of a digital preservation repository.The Watch will monitor events occurring inside the repository, but notonly preservation events. It will monitor events like "SIP ingestionstarted", "SIP ingestion finished", "user downloaded representation","user consulted descriptive metadata", "Preservation Plan executed onobject", etc.The monitoring will access the repository event information through anAPI that repositories will implement called Report API. This API willbe an OAI-PMH provider that disseminates records in PREMIS XML format.PREMIS events are meant to record preservation events and the objectsof those events can be PREMIS Objects (representations, files orbitstreams).In our case the objects of the events may be SIPs, Intellectualentities (descriptive metadata) and Preservation Plans (although Planscan also be considered PREMIS Agents).The current version of PREMIS Event Entity has only 1 element (2.7linkingObjectIdentifier) to link objects to an event. In our case itwould be useful if we could link other types of objects to the eventusing elements like (linkingIntellectualEntityIdentifier,linkingSIPIdentifier, linkingPlanIdentifier) or a generic element like"linkingOtherObjectIdentifier".Is it possible to consider the addition of such an element in futureversions of the data model?Best regards,Rui Castro-- Rui CastroDiretor de infraestruturasKEEP SOLUTIONS, LDA.Rua Rosalvo de Almeida, nÂº 54710-429 Braga, PortugalW www.keep.pt E [log in to unmask]T +351 253066735 F +351 253067248
