|Title: ||Technical Metadata Set: Environmental support of digital objects|
|Authors: ||Esteva, Maria|
|Keywords: ||preservation metadata, technical metadata|
|Issue Date: ||8-Apr-2003|
|Abstract: ||This website addresses preservation metadata. According to the OCLC/RLG Preservation Metadata Working Group, "preservation metadata is intended to support and facilitate the long-term retention of digital information." Among the elements contained on a Preservation Metadata Set, those that allow the recording of the technical environment in which a digital object can be accessed and preserved over time comprise a subset called technical metadata.
This technical metadata sub-set describes:
the software and hardware environments needed to display or access the current instantiation of the original digital object
the technical elements involved in the transformation processes that the instantiations of digital objects go through in order to be accessed, displayed and preserved over time|
|Description: ||Twenty files constituting the Preservation Metadata Subdomain Expert Portoflio website prepared as an assignment for the class "Lifecycle Metadata for Digital Objects," taught by Dr. Patricia Galloway at the School of Information, University of Texas at Austin, Fall 2002.|
