--Please excuse any cross postings--

This survey is for librarians who have supervised a library science intern
or practicum student 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 cataloging practicum/internship experiences and offers guidelines
to both students and supervisors on how to create a successful cataloging
practicum/internship experience. If you supervised a library science
graduate student internship or practicum, we invite you to participate in
this survey.

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
participate in this survey. You are not required to answer every question
and can choose to skip to the next question. The study has fulfilled the
requirements for conducting human-subject research. Please provide as much
detail about your experiences as possible.

The survey will be available through December 8, 2007. If you have any
questions, please contact Melanie McGurr at the Ohio State University ,
[log in to unmask] or Ione Damasco at the University of Dayton,
