Thanks to everyone who has taken the time answer the reengineering finding aids survey at:
So far, the response rate has been excellent. I could still use more responses, however, and would appreciate the help of anyone who hasn't yet answered.
One point of clarification: although it might not have been too clear because of the word "reengineering" in the title, I constructed the survey so that new finding aids could be accounted for as well. So if you're only encoding new finding aids -- or if you're generating finding aids from other representations such as catalog cards -- you can still indicate this through the survey. I'm as interested in approaches to standardization in new finding aids as I am for older ones!
If you have made any effort meant to standardize your archival description and/or surrogates according to national/international standards for the purposes of accessibility, you should be able to complete this survey.
If you'd like to take the survey in a Rich Text Format version instead of over the Web, please let me know and I'll accommodate you immediately.
Thanks for your help,
