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.

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