PoM: Metadata for Preservation

NEDCC Persistence of Memory Conference
Speaker: Priscilla Caplan, Florida Center for Library Automation

Preservation Pyramid: (top down)
* Fixity - quality of not being altered or deleted
* Viability - quality of being readable from media
* Renderability - quality of being displayable or otherwise usable
* Authenticity - quality of being what it purports to be

Standards for metadata
- PREMIS, IMER (general)
- Z39.87 (format-specific)
- METS, MPEG-21 (packaging)

What does all this mean? Questions to ask if you are developing a digital repository or building digital content.
