 Dear Colleagues,

A Cataloging and Metadata Survey was developed by the survey working group
of the Visual Resources Association (VRA) Data Standards and VRA Core
Oversight Committees. The survey was fielded between February 22 and April
7, 2017, and received 157 responses. The survey's main objectives were to:

   1. understand the scope of cataloging and metadata practice of visual
   resources professionals,
   2. evaluate the use and satisfaction with the VRA Core data standard,
   3. determine how the VRA can best support the needs of cataloging and
   metadata professionals in the future.

The working group prepared this report
the findings, conclusions, and next steps.

We believe the findings will be of interest to the members of the VRA and
to the profession in general as both continue to evolve. We thank all who
participated in the survey. If you have any comments or questions about the
report, please contact me, Zoe Waldron <zoewaldron at nypl.org> (offlist
please). We will be publishing the report in the Visual Resources
Association Bulletin and any added feedback will be welcome to help develop
further analysis for that article.

Sincerely yours,
Zoe Waldron
on behalf of the Cataloging and Metadata Survey working group
