Colleagues --

AVPreserve is happy to share the release of the results of our recent
study (under contract to the Library of Congress) of technical
metadata for Audiovisual resources in the context of BIBFRAME.

The study analyzes the relationship between BIBFRAME and the PREMIS
Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata
(http://www.loc.gov/standards/premis); investigates the applicability
for structural and technical descriptions within the bibliographic
context; looks at the technical information in MARC 21 and other
metadata standards; and provides recommendations on which technical
attributes of audiovisual material should be included in the BIBFRAME
vocabulary.

The report, entitled “BIBFRAME AV Assessment: Technical, Structural,
and Preservation Metadata” can be accessed at the Library of Congress
website: http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/docs/pdf/bf-avtechstudy-01-04-2016.pdf.

Comments, concerns, and discussion are encouraged via the BIBFRAME
listserv (see the BIBFRAME contact page
http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/contact ) or directly to

I include, below, the official announcement of this study from the
Library of Congress MARC Standards Office.

Best regards --

The Library of Congress has just posted on the BIBFRAME website a new
report:  “BIBFRAME AV Assessment: Technical, Structural, and
Preservation Metadata”
http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/docs/pdf/bf-avtechstudy-01-04-2016.pdf. It
was prepared by Kara Van Malssen and Bertram Lyons of AVPreserve under
contract to the Library of Congress.  The report studies the state of
technical, structural, and preservation metadata for audiovisual
resources in the bibliographic environment. This paper makes
recommendations about the extent to which BIBFRAME might support the
expression of this type of information and where other metadata
standards could be used. Because audiovisual resources encompass a
wide range of media types, typically with complex structures, and are
dependent on an intermediary device to play them, they provide an
important use case for evaluating the scope and detail of such
information in BIBFRAME.

The study analyzes the relationship between BIBFRAME and the PREMIS
Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata
http://www.loc.gov/standards/premis, investigates the applicability
for structural and technical descriptions within the bibliographic
context, looks at the technical information in MARC 21 and other
metadata standards, and provides recommendations on which technical
attributes of audiovisual material should be included in the BIBFRAME
vocabulary.

The report consists of a base document with the analysis and
recommendations, several appendices examining technical metadata in
further detail as well as proposed AV technical metadata for BIBFRAME,
and three sets of examples for video, audio and film resources.
Appendices can be found at this link:
