in constructing or updating Content Information and Preservation
Description Information. (Submission Information Package - SIP)

2.       To manage and preserve Content Information and its associated
Preservation Description Information. (Archival Information Package - AIP)

3.       To transmit from the OAIS to the Consumer information that is
traceable to the Content Information and/or Preservation Description
Information contained in one or more Archival Information Package.
