  • 3. “Climategate”<br />November 2009<br />
  • 4. What would “Climategate” for a library look like?<br />Hypothetical situation:<br />We hold the papers of a former member of the faculty; decades after her death, interest in her research skyrockets<br />Most of the material still exists in print form<br />Some of the originals have somehow disappeared, but digital surrogates were created when the collection was processed<br />Given the high stakes, how can we state, with confidence, that the digital surrogates are reliable, authentic, have not been tampered with, etc.?<br />PRESERVATION METADATA TO THE RESCUE<br />
  • 5. Quick poll<br />Are you currently <br />creating/capturing/storing <br />preservation metadata? <br />Yes = green check, No = red “x”<br />
  • 6. Quick poll (2)<br />Are you creating/storing PREMIS?<br />Yes = green check, No = red “x”<br />Also:<br />if you have specific things you’re interested in talking about today, this would be a good time to shout (type) them out<br />

  • 8. Curation. The activity of, managing and promoting the use of data from its point of creation, to ensure it is fit for contemporary purpose, and available for discovery and re-use. For dynamic datasets this may mean continuous enrichment or updating to keep it fit for purpose. Higher levels of curation will also involve maintaining links with annotation and with other published materials.<br />Archiving. A curation activity which ensures that data is properly selected, stored, can be accessed and that its logical and physical integrity is maintained over time, including security and authenticity.<br />Preservation. An activity within archiving in which specific items of data are maintained over time so that they can still be accessed and understood through changes in technology.<br />Lord, Philip, and Alison Macdonald. 2003.

  • 13. Preservation metadata supports activities intended to ensure the long-term usability of a digital resource.<br />-Priscilla Caplan, Understanding PREMIS<br />2009. Library of Congress Network Development and MARC Standards Office. http://www.loc.gov/standards/premis/understanding-premis.pdf.<br />
  • 14. Before any preservation metadata is created: WHY?<br />Ability to share between archives is critical to long-term health<br />Sharing depends on clear understanding of what the objects are and how they were created (who did what and when?)<br />Everything is potentially worth documenting: how and why was object created, what metadata decisions were made and why, etc.<br />

  • 28. Guiding questions for Books PREMIS<br />What is actually possible to capture?<br />Every event easily tied to a step in the Crabcake system<br />Basic information about every user of the Crabcake system<br />What do we absolutely need to capture?<br />Any event that results in a new digital file<br />What would be nice to have but is not possible in this grant timeframe?<br />What do we NOT want to capture?<br />Any information that is already captured elsewhere:<br />Version information stored in Fedora<br />Metadata creation timestamps<br />Specifics of process and editing stored in jobs.xml or batchprocess.xml<br />Relationships between files as reflected in the RELS-EXT<br />
  • 29. Design evolved gradually<br />Version 1: November 2008<br />Intellectual entity: representation of book<br />Objects: Fedora book object, maybe page objs?<br />Events: Fedora creation, scanning, each step in the image post-processing, rescans, foldout insertions, creation of METS book structure, OCR, permanent URL (Handle), JP2 file creation, ingestion <br />Agents: each piece of software used, each person operating<br />Rights: copyright status of book as a whole, detailed notes about likely expiration, investigative steps, etc.<br />
  • 30. Design evolved gradually<br />Versions 2,3,4: December 2008<br />ADDED events specific to new BWI system <br />book files copied between processing workstations <br />“associate rescans” (page replacement)<br />Included specific object references to each page object in any event where they were implicated<br />
  • 31. Design evolved gradually<br />Version 5: September 2009<br />All events eliminated except “Approve”<br />No references to objects other than the book object<br />Simplified rights statement<br />
  • 32. Design evolved gradually<br />Version 6: February 2010<br />Same extremely lightweight structure: one object, one event, one agent<br />Further simplified rights statement to bring it in line with University of Michigan’s codes developed in Google scan evaluation<br />This is the version actually implemented<br />
