Preservation metadata (1)
All digital preservation strategies depend - to
some extent - on the creation, capture and
maintenance of metadata
"Preserving the right metadata is key to
preserving digital objects" (ERPANET Briefing
Paper, 2003)
Defined as:
The various types data that will allow the re-
creation and interpretation of the structure and
content of digital data over time (Ludäsher,
Marciano & Moore, 2001)
