Title

Metadata For A Web Archive: PREMIS And XMP As Tools For The Task

Subject

Web archiving

Description

In this article the standards of metadata and tools are explored and questioned to see if they are the best options for ensuring protection and permanence of web archiving objects, such as snapshots of websites. The text questions whether the evolution of web interfaces can even be documented. Through studies it explores the possibility of encoding Preservation Metadata: Implementation Strategies (PREMIS) within Adobe's eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP). And through their findings they found it is in part impossible to encode PREMIS within XMP. However the article does seek to find best practices related to metadata standards and tools that are relevant and useful for web archiving.
