Dear Stephanie,

It may be that the Electronic Literature Organization can best
recommend standards ( MIX captures
the information on technologies in creation of digital files in
digitization ( and so seems to be a
parallel to your request. Recording of provenance information for each
change on digital files is a problem with active interest from data
groups like the Research Data Alliance and the work of their Research
Data Provenance Interest Group
may be of use.

Best wishes,
Laurie N. Taylor, Ph.D.
