The PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata is the international standard for metadata to support the preservation of digital objects and ensure their long-term usability. The Data Dictionary defines preservation metadata that:
*Supports the viability, renderability, understandability, authenticity, and identity of digital objects in a preservation context
*Represents the information most preservation repositories need to know to preserve digital materials over the long term
*Emphasizes “implementable metadata”: rigorously defined, supported by guidelines for creation, management, and use, and oriented toward automated workflows
*Embodies technical neutrality: no assumptions made about preservation technologies, strategies, metadata storage and management, etc
