TEI TheText Encoding Initiative (TEI) is a consortium which collectively develops and maintains a standard for the representation of texts in digital form.
METS (LOC) TheMETS schema is a standard for encoding descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata regarding objects within a digital library, expressed using the XML schema language of the World Wide Web Consortium. http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/
Preservation Metadata: ImplementationStrategies (PREMIS) PREMIS data dictionary entries include twelve attribute fields, not all of which are applied to every semantic unit (analogous to an "element" in other metadata schemes). In addition to the name and definition of the unit, the fields record such things as rationale for including the unit, usage notes, and examples of how the value might be filled in. Four of the attributes - object category, applicability, repeatability, and obligation - are linked, as the last three are defined for each of the object entity levels of file, bitstream, and representation. The dictionary is hierarchical; some semantic units are contained within others. For example, 1.3 preservationLevel, includes four semantic components, such as 1.3.1 preservationLevelValue and 1.3.2 preservationLevelRole. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PREMIS
Bagit The Library (of Congress) – with the California Digital Library and Stanford University – has developed guidelines for creating and moving standardized digital containers, called “bags.” A bag functions like a physical envelope that is used to send content through the mail but with bags, a user sends content from one computer to another. http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/videos/b agit0609.html
