Various efforts aimed at representing digital assets have emerged from several communities over the last years, including the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS), the IMS Content Packaging (IMS-CP) XML Binding and the XML Formatted Data Units (XFDU). The MPEG-21 Digital Item Declaration (MPEG-21 DID) is another approach that can be used for the representation of digital assets in XML. This paper will explore the potential of the MPEG-21 DID in a Digital Preservation context, by… 

Figures from this paper

Using XFDU for CASPAR information packaging
TLDR
New tools and techniques in working with XFDU are outlined, which together provide an integrated system suitable for solving complex issues of preserving digital assets using information packaging.
A standard-based context sensitive service architecture for digital object dissemination
TLDR
This paper describes a context sensitive service architecture for digital object dissemination based on OpenURL and MPEG-21 Digital Item Adaptation that can be used to construct highly customizable and adaptive context sensitive dissemination services for institutional repositories.
Implementing PREMIS in Container Formats
TLDR
This paper summarizes some of the experiences gained in implementing PREMIS in container formats, especially in the context of the METS and MPEG-21 DID frameworks.
CRATE: A Simple Model for Self-Describing Web Resources
TLDR
This paper proposes a simple preservation model called a CRATE, a complex object consisting of undifferentiated metadata and the resource byte stream, and describes the CRATE complex object and compares it with other complex-object models.
Integrating Preservation Functions into the Apache Web Server
TLDR
This work explores the use of an Apache module to expose more of the available content and metadata than is currently found through crawling a site, and whether the web server itself can be adapted to actively support preservation of web-accessible content.
Repository Replication Using NNTP and SMTP
TLDR
The SMTP and NNTP protocols are utilized to replicate both the metadata and the content of a digital library, using OAI-PMH to facilitate management of the archival process.
Repository replication using SMTP and NNTP
TLDR
The focus of the efforts is to evaluate different preservation models based on Internet infrastructure that sites already have, and replicating the contents of a repository using the Simple Mail Transport Protocol and Network News Transfer Protocol.

Representing digital assets usingMPEG-21 Digital Item Declaration
TLDR
The potential relevance of MPEG-21 DID to the digital library community is demonstrated by describing its use in the aDORe repository environment at the Research Library of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) for the representation of digital assets.
A Survey of Complex Object Technologies for Digital Libraries
TLDR
A representative (but not necessarily exhaustive) number of current and recent historical web-based complex object technologies and projects that are applicable to DLs are examined.
A framework for distributed digital object services
The following paper was written by the authors over a period of approximately 16 months during the period November 1993 to May 1995 in an attempt to explore a set of open research issues and to
