As many of us may know, PREMIS stands for “PREservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies. In 2009 Priscilla Caplan authored the publication titled ‘Understanding PREMIS’, published by the Library of Congress Network Development and MARC Standards Office. The publication serves as an overview of the PREMIS preservation metadata standard. As stated in the publication, “The PREMIS Data Dictionary defines preservation metadata as “the information a repository uses to support the digital preservation process.”

In January 2011 the PREMIS project published the Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata, version 2.1. The PREMIS data model has preservation metadata grouped within five entities, which include intellectual entities, objects, events, rights, and agents. View dictionary for more details.
As stated on the project’s website, “The Metadata Extraction Tool was developed by the National Library of New Zealand to programmatically extract preservation metadata from a range of file formats like PDF documents, image files, sound files Microsoft office documents, and many others. The tool was initially developed in 2003 and released as open source softtware in 2007. The current version can be downloaded from the SourceForge.”
