Definition of DIP
Dissemination Information Package (DIP)
- OAIS describes a DIP as "the Information Package, derived from a part, or all, of one or more AIPs, received by the Consumer in response to a request to the OAIS."
- York University Digital Library's (YUDL) DIPs are always generated from a single AIP.
- User access to archival objects is provided through the [YUDL website](http://digital.library.yorku.ca](http://digital.library.yorku.ca).
- The user, depending on their level of access, will may see basic object metadata, and an access version of the digital object.
- Context information is provided in the form of links to other items in a given collection.
- The DIP is retrieved using the URI for the corresponding AIP. In turn, the AIP contains metadata tying it back to the SIP.
