    • Embedded Metadata and the Long Now Kari R. Smith History of Art, VRC Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor
    • Setting the Stage
      • Preservation Metadata
      • Context
      • Implementation Issues
      • Scenarios
      • Embedded Metadata working group and External Collaboration
    • Preservation Metadata
      • Preservation = Long Term Access
      • Digital preservation = long term access that’s technology driven
      • Most have an Opt-In strategy for Digital Preservation
      •   Technical MD
      • Administrative MD
      • Descriptive MD
      • Where does Embedded Metadata fit into all this?
    • EM & PM
      • Good time to be thinking / researching about this
      • Learning about metadata mgmt in relation to Images
      • We don’t yet have preservation metadata standards
    • Implementation Issues
      • Intermediary curators
      • Local decisions informed by good practice
      • Minimal metadata set that is doable
      • What is the Value of the images in relation to long term access?
      •   Students in an architecture class want to donate to the library’s digital collection the image they captured during a semester long project to document building decay in the city.
        • Which images are by which student?
        • Location of the buildings shown in the images?
        • For which course were these created?
        • When were the image files created – not the date they were manipulated?
      • Faculty member is retiring. Hands over a HDD or points you to file space with thousands of digital image files “for the collection”. What can you Do?
        • Are these files that you already produced for the collection?
        • Are they licensed image files?
        • Are they original digital photography?
        • Are they master digital image files or generational?
        • What are the rights for preservation / usage and who has the rights?
    • Coordination outside of VRA
      • Society of American Archivists
        • Research Forum poster presentation 2009
        • Research Forum platform presentation 2010
      • Digital Preservation Management Workshops
        • Awareness + Implications
    • 5 Stages for DPM
      • Stage 1 = Awareness (potential for EM to be valuable for preservation
      • Stage 2 = Project
      • Stage 3 = Recommended practice
      • Stage 4 = Common practice
      • Stage 5 = Inter-institutional / Standards
