The PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata is the international
standard for metadata to support the preservation of digital objects and
ensure their long-term usability. Developed by an international team of
experts, PREMIS is implemented in digital preservation projects around the
world, and support for PREMIS is incorporated into a number of commercial
and open-source digital preservation tools and systems. The PREMIS
Editorial Committee coordinates revisions and implementation of the
standard, which consists of the Data Dictionary, an XML schema, and
supporting documentation.

The PREMIS Data Dictionary is currently in version 2.2. A new major release
3.0 is due out this summer. This webinar gives a brief overview of why
digital preservation metadata is needed, shows examples of digital
preservation metadata, shows how PREMIS can be used to capture this
metadata, and illustrates some of the changes that will be available in
version 3.0.
