Survey for current and former cataloging students/interns. Thank you
to those who have already responded.
This survey is for catalogers who have graduated from an ALA-accredited
M.L.S. program and completed a practicum or internship in cataloging. A
great deal of discussion about cataloging education has been raised in the
library community as of late, and we feel an important component of
cataloging education is the practicum/internship experience.
Our intent is to include the survey results in a journal article that
examines practicum/internship experiences and offers guidelines to both
students and supervisors on how to create a successful practicum/internship
experience. If you completed a cataloging practicum or internship while you
were a graduate student in library science, we invite you to participate in
The survey is eleven questions long and should take approximately fifteen
minutes. All results will remain completely anonymous. The survey is
completely voluntary, and your completion of the survey implies your consent
to participate in this study. You must be 18 years of age or older to

and can choose to skip to the next question. The study has fulfilled the

detail about your experiences as possible.
The survey will be available through December 8, 2007. If you have any
