Dear Catalogers and Metadata Specialists,

Just a quick reminder to please take (if you would like to and have not
already done so) the comprehensive survey of cataloging and metadata
practices created by the Data Standards and VRA Core Oversight Committees
of the Visual Resources Association. It's available at
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VHGVZTX. Ideal survey respondents are those
whose work includes cataloging and metadata activities. Multiple staff at
the same institution are welcome to participate.

The response to the survey has been fantastic so far, and we are very much
looking forward to your input before the survey closes on April 7. We will
share preliminary results with you in the spring.

The survey explores the scope of cataloging and metadata practices of
visual resources professionals. Beyond informing our broad community about
current prevalent practices, the survey results will help guide the VRA in
supporting both current needs and future developments via educational
outreach and practical tools for catalogers and metadata specialists.
Additionally, there are a few questions about use of, and satisfaction
with, the VRA Core 4.0 data standard. We would like to gather your
responses even if you are not a current user of VRA Core. The survey
consists of 29 questions and should not take more than 20 minutes to

Sincerely yours,
Zoe Waldron
on behalf of the Cataloging and Metadata Practices Survey Working Group
