<amdSec> elements contain the administrative metadata pertaining to the files comprising a digital library object, as well as that pertaining to the original source material used to create the object. There are four main forms of administrative metadata provided for in a METS document: 1. Technical Metadata (information regarding files’ creation, format, and use characteristics), 2. Intellectual Property Rights Metadata (copyright and license information), 3. Source Metadata (descriptive and administrative metadata regarding the analog source from which a digital library object derives), and 4. Digital Provenance Metadata (information regarding source/destination relationships between files, including master/derivative relationships between files and information regarding migrations/transformations employed on files between original digitization of an artifact and its current incarnation as a digital library object). Each of these four different types of administrative metadata has a unique subelement within the <amdSec> portion of a METS document in which that form of metadata can be embedded: <techMD>, <rightsMD>, <sourceMD>, and <digiprovMD>. Each of these four elements may occur more than once in any METS document.

9. Research and documentation of rights metadata must be an integral part of an institution’s metadata work flow. This metadata should be captured and managed in an appropriate information system that is available to the all of the individuals in the organization who need to contribute to it as well as those who need to use it.
