Object-level PREMIS rights import
The Rockefeller Archives Centre is a heavy user of the PREMIS rights functionality in Archivematica and therefore sponsored the development of this foundational feature. This feature will allow users to apply PREMIS rights to individual objects by including a CSV file with the transfer, rather than having all of the objects in the transfer inherit rights applied to the SIP via the Add Rights form in the metadata module.
Upload object-level PREMIS rights with an Archivematica transfer via a CSV file included in the transfer directory.
The below functionality will be documented in the Archivematica wiki and, once the feature is merged into a qa branch of the Archivematica project for public release, the official Archivematica documentation.
- User creates a CSV file containing PREMIS rights information for the desired digital objects.
- The user will be able to enter multiple acts for the same rights basis. Rows for the same object with the same rights basis will be treated as separate acts for the basis and merged. For example, the first two rows below will be merged, while the third row will be separate. (N.B. the below table is for illustrative purposes only and does not reflect how the CSV will eventually be structured.)
