There is a group of people from the PREMIS implementation community and PREMIS editorial committee working with Sam Coppens at the University of Ghent in Belgium on a PREMIS ontology. Sam has been active in the W3C Provenance Incubator Group. The work was discussed at the PREMIS Implementation Fair after iPres 2010 in Vienna in September. We are planning to open it up for public review soon, after one more round of changes. It is a representation of PREMIS as an OWL ontology and links into the preservation controlled vocabularies in id.loc.gov. We are also planning to bring in more controlled vocabularies from PREMIS into id in the near future.

I will send a link to the list when it is available for public comment.

I don't think the PREMIS RDF vocabulary that Rob, John and I worked on saw the light of day on the PREMIS discussion list. While I thought it was a good start, I wasn't completely happy with the treatment of identifiers, and a few other things.

A lot of work has gone into the PREMIS data model (as opposed to a particular XML Schema) from a wide variety of folks in the digital preservation community. My personal opinion is that an RDF vocabulary for PREMIS would be an essential tool for a Linked Data practitioner in the digital preservation area.
