Information modeling that is broadly applied in digital archiving process privides conceptual process that can be used to guide the creation of descriptions for the objects of preservation. However, it has faced with the limitations on substantially applying to the creation of preservation metadata records. This research proposes the concept of Resource Cluster in order to address these problems and efficiently describe the objects of preservation during digital archiving process. It also constructed Preservation Description Framework (PDF) based on RDF in order to substantially manifest preservation descriptions. This framework combines the structure of OAIS Reference Model and Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and can be an alternative approach to the creation of preservation metadata in more efficient and effective ways.
