One Stone, Two Birds: Data Assessment Framework for Digital Collection Audit and Preservation
One possible output of modifying the DAF to assess digital collections is the potential to map DAF data into PREMIS records for preservation purposes. This activity is unique on the collection level and enhanced reuse is the main benefit of such mapping. The stored XML data can be compared with new audit data for any updates and affords a novel means for tracking changes to digital objects at the collection level. This paper will detail the process used to 1) modify the DAF, 2) map DAF data elements into PREMIS and 3) build a business case for reuse for future audits. The composition and rationale for the tool set and the results attained form the concluding remarks.
