The PREMIS Editorial Committee decided at their last meeting to flesh out the current PREMIS “intellectual entities” entity and is inclined to treat it as a type of “preservation object” as was suggested in the Planets model. This is a simple and elegant solution which increases the scope of PREMIS but not the size of the PREMIS dictionary. It even eliminates the semantic unit “linkingIntellectualEntity”. And it will make it possible to directly associate agents and events with an intellectual entity. It is great to see that our Planets model has a constructive influence on the de-facto standard.
At the PREMIS implementation fair at iPres 2010 I will talk about the relationship of the Planets and PREMIS models.
