Dear members - 

The deadline for completing the PBCore survery is next Monday (5/5).  Thanks to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey.  

If you still haven't, please consider doing so.  We are very interested in obtaining your feedback, even from those not actively using PBCore, or even considering it.  

Plus, you might win a mug - that even holds liquid!  

Thanks so much - here is the link:

Subject: [ARSCLIST] PBCore survey

Dear ARSC members,

If you manage sound or moving image assets at your workplace, I hope you'll take the time to read this email, and respond to the linked survey.

The PBCore Advisory Subcommittee of the Association of Moving Image Archivists has just launched a survey to:
  find out about the current cataloguing / documentation practices of people working with audiovisual collections
  gather user feedback on areas of improvement of the PBCore schema
  gather information from non-users of PBCore, and
  find out how the PBCore Advisory Subcommittee can better meet the needs of the PBCore community

Here is the link to the survey:<>

We encourage you to take the survey before Monday, May 5, but we'll continue to accept responses indefinitely. If you take the survey before May 5, you can have a chance at winning a PBCore mug, which will feature our recently created new PBCore logo (and who wouldn't want a PBCore mug?)  We'll announce the 3 winners on Friday, May 9th.

For additional information about the project, please go to:

As a member of the PBCore Schema team, if you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this email.

Thank you!
