InterPARES Definition

n. ~ PaaST (PreservationCollection) · A specialization of collection whose members are designated for preservation.


  • PaaST (1.0) 2017 (†860 p. 29): One PermanentFeature that is common to all PreservationCollections is the criterion or set of criteria that determine membership in the aggregate. That Feature can be used to determine both whether a PreservationCollection is complete and whether it includes IntellectualEntities that do not belong. A PreservationCollection could have other Permanent Features. If the Producer of a PreservationCollection imposed any order on the members, that would be a PermanentFeature of the aggregate. (†2542)
