The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation (WWNFF) program was designed to encourage college graduates to consider college teaching as a career and provided support for first-year graduate students in the humanities and the social sciences in its early years before expanding to include mathematics and the sciences. Each fellowship file contains application forms, recommendations, transcripts, and other documentation used to track the fellow’s progress.
On February 13, 2013 the D-REC Committee attended an NISO Webinar about viewpoints and updates from industry leaders on theory and practice of preservation metadata.
The Webinar consists of presentations by Rebecca Guenther and Amy Kirchhoff. Rebecca Guenther, Consultant and Standards specialist at the Library of Congress, discusses the types of information that should be associated with an archival digital object, the development of the PREMIS data dictionary and corresponding XML schema. Amy Kirchhoff who is the Archive Service Manager at Portico details Portico’s applications of the PREMIS standard to their digital preservation repositories.
