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.
