“Expressing Preservation Requirements on Audiovisual Collections”. This is the third webinar in a series created by PrestoCentre and Presto4U on diverse topics related to AV digitisation and digital preservation.

The webinar will start with the basics on what the requirements are, how they are created and for which purposes they serve. The webinar will then discuss how standards can play a key role in the expression of requirements for digital preservation and will exemplify the concept by showing how to use three standards: the OAIS reference model, the Ontology for Media Resources and the ISO/IEC 25010 System and Software Quality Requirments and Evaluation SQuaRE – System and Software Quality.
