BIBFRAME AV Assessment: Technical, Structural, and Preservation Metadata | AV Preserve

This report presents the findings of a study conducted by Bertram Lyons and Kara Van Malssen of AVPreserve, on behalf of the Library of Congress, to evaluate the existing state of technical, structural, and preservation metadata for audiovisual resources in the bibliographic environment in light of existing standards for audiovisual metadata, and to make recommendations about how BIBFRAME can support the expression of such information.

ArchivesSpace-Archivematica-DSpace Workflow Integration: A Primer on PREMIS and PREMIS Rights

In today's post, I'd like to talk a little about PREMIS (the data dictionary, not the working group--although I'm sure they're all great people, like Evelyn!). We've been using something akin to PREMIS Lite as part of our digital archiving workflow for a while now. As part of our work on the ArchivesSpace-Archivematica-DSpace Workflow Integration project, however, and in thinking about our eventual move to Hydra, we're gearing up to implement something more like PREMIS Proper, especially for PREMIS Rights.

Bibliographic Framework (BIBFRAME) in Action | Library of Congress

The BIBFRAME Pilot is underway and is a component of a major effort by the Library of Congress to lead the library community into the linked open data world. Developing BIBFRAME requires involvement of information specialists to create a new ecosystem in which bibliographic data are compatible with the broader World Wide Web environment. Speakers will discuss progress to date, relevance of BIBFRAME in today’s environment, and the current status of the BIBFRAME Editor, including a demonstration of the modifications to the Editor from a programmer’s perspective.

Content-disposition: Archival – Repatriating Dates on Access to Born-digital Records Online - Open Preservation Foundation

Downloading an object over the internet through a standard web-browser is a mechanism that is ‘less-than-optimal’ for the delivery of archival objects. Download of objects will not preserve the file-system metadata of the object. Tools like Wget can do this, but do we want the same behavior of the browser? On answering that, do we also need to create mandatory new requirements in future digital preservation systems? The repatriation of modified dates with born-digital records, for example?

Data Management and Curation in 21st Century Archives – Part 1 | hangingtogether.org

I attended the 79th Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) last month in Cleveland, Ohio and was invited to participate on the Research Libraries Roundtable panel on Data Management and Curation in 21st Century Archives. Dan Noonan, e-Records/Digital Resources Archivist, moderated the discussion.

Yet Another Metadata Zoo - The Digital Shift

I was talking with my old friend John Kunze a little while back and he described a project that he is involved with called “Yet Another Metadata Zoo” or yamz.net. In a world of more ontologies than you can shake a stick at, it aims to provide a simple, easy-to-use mechanism for defining and maintaining individual metadata terms and their definitions.
The project explains itself like this:
