→PBCore in Action: Three Words, Not Two!
In 2001, public media representatives developed the PBCore XML schema to establish a common language for managing metadata about their analog and digital audio and video. Since then, PBCore has been adopted by a number of organizations and archivists in the moving image archival community. The schema has also undergone a few revisions, but on more than one occasion it was left orphaned and with little to no support.
Times have changed. You may have heard the news that PBCore is back in action as part of the American Archive of Public Broadcasting initiative and via the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) PBCore Advisory Subcommittee. A group of archivists, public media stakeholders, and engaged users have come together to provide necessary support for the standard and to see to its further development
. It's really exciting to see that archivists are finally starting to deal with their audiovisual collections, and we are confident that PBCore will have a place in those efforts.
At this session, we'll discuss the scope and uses of PBCore in digital preservation and access, report on the progress and goals of the PBCore Advisory Subcommittee, and share how the group (by the time of the conference) will have transformed the XML schema into an RDF ontology, bringing PBCore into the second decade of the 21st century. #PBHardcore
