Digital objects include both files and accompanying metadata, but how much and which metadata are actually necessary to preserve and provide long-term access? Panelists examine tradeoffs related to what metadata to include in the Archival Information Package. The challenges of applying different schemas to metadata from a variety of sources, deciding which PREMIS metadata are essential, and merging file/folder-based descriptions with item-level systems also are explored.
