We'd like to thank all who participated and will participate in this 
survey. We'll distribute the results as soon as we complete the studies. 
Dear Colleagues, 

We would like to invite you to participate in our online survey entitled 
Metadata Creation and Metadata Quality Control across Digital 
Repositories: Evaluation of Current Practices. This project has been 
funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for a three-year 
period (2006-2009). Through this study, we aim to gain a better 
understanding of issues surrounding the metadata creation process, the 
employment of controlled vocabulary schemes, metadata quality control 
measures and new competencies and skill sets demanded from 
cataloging/metadata professionals in the digital era, with associated 
consequences to library and information science education.   

We are interested in your participation because of your education and 
career background in cataloging and metadata. 

Participation in the survey is anonymous and voluntary. If you have any 
questions about the survey, please contact the Principal Investigator of 
this study at [log in to unmask] or 215-895-1669 at any 
time. The survey should take approximately 25 to 30 minutes to complete. 

The following link will lead you to the survey: 

Please complete the survey by September 30, 2008. Your assistance in 
providing invaluable information about this topic is much appreciated.
