TUTORIAL: 5 February 2009 – Civita, Piazza Venezia
ROUND TABLE: 6 February 2009 – Palazzina dell’Auditorium - Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei
Via della Lungara n. 230

The workshop aims at developing and spreading awareness and knowledge about metadata to support the long term preservation of digital objects, in particular it focuses on the PREMIS standard, which is managed by the PREMIS Editorial Committee in conjunction with the Library of Congress.
The event is divided in two parts: a Tutorial and a Round Table
- On the 5th of February 2009 at the Tutorial Rebecca Guenther introduces PREMIS development and the PREMIS semantic units and gives an overview of current approaches for implementation.
- On the 6th of February 2009 the Round Table evaluates the relationships of the PREMIS standard with other metadata standards for digital archives with a specific attention at the cultural heritage Italian community. Participants will be invited to share their experiences and should be planning for or operating a repository that implements PREMIS in some way for its preservation metadata. It will be also an opportunity to meet some important European preservation projects, such as: DPE, CASPAR, PLANETS. The event will close with a participatory discussion session.
Registration for the Tutorial and Round Table is mandatory because seats are limited.
