InterPARES Authenticity Metadata [English]
- Abbr: IPAM
n. ~ A metadata profile with functional requirements to ensure that metadata is necessary and sufficient to support the presumption of the authenticity of records, is interoperable between systems and across time, is adequate for archival description, and is useful for both the retrieval and meaningful display of records (Tennis and Rogers, 2012, 42).
- Tennis and Rogers 2012 (†906 p. 42): In accordance with best practice, we established functional requirements for our metadata application profile (InterPARES authenticity metadata, or IPAM). Six functional requirements encompassed the scope of IPAM: (1) presumption of authenticity, (2) interoperability between systems and across time, (3) parsimony, (4) adequacy for archival description, (5) retrieval, and (6) meaningful display. ¶ We can make clear what we want from our metadata by translating this set of functional requirements into a sentence. It reads, these metadata should be necessary and sufficient to support the presumption of authenticity of records, interoperate between systems and across time, be adequate for archival description, and be useful for both retrieval and meaningful display of records.
