           Karin Bredenberg 2008-09-26
Two different approaches
•   In our own archival database (in use)

•   For our suppliers (in progress)
In our database
•   Incorporated in the archival database ARKIS2

•   Connected with the archival object of type born digital

•   Also used for image files from our scanning projects
ARKIS2
•   A Swedish archival management system

•   Own development

•   All metadata about archives regardless of storage
    media. (paper as well as digital)
PREMIS implementation
Storage Architecture
For our suppliers
•   A way of letting them describe the digital objects history
    before we receive it.

•   XML included in the AIP.

•   A predefined set of taggs that we require.

•   Eventually a full PREMIS-file
Suppliers cont.
•   Level of accuracy depends on decisions of destruction
    of the data history (e.g. is data about creation,
    upgrading and so on going to be saved)

•   METS to be used as package information.
    PREMIS inside METS or own file not yet decided

Data Carrier (StorageMedium) Metadata about tapes (LTO4) and disks Relationships between Archival units Contains all kinds of relationships including: Linking intellectual identifier Related object identification Content Location

Archival unit Generic table containing records for all archival units in the system including intellectual entities, premis objects and also storage media
Location of Archival units Contains also locations for data carriers

Specific information files (Premis Objects) Contains technical metadata specific for files, including TAR-packages (AIP:s)

Locations All storage facilities (rooms, shelves etc)

Users and Groups (Premis agents) Contains information about all users in the system including software packages such as ESSArch used for storage management

Event log (Premis Events) Contains a logg of all events concerning files and storage. A subset of the logging events are true Premis Events.

Repository Contains records for all repositories within the National Archives and the regional state archives
