Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in our online survey on cataloging and metadata continuing education needs in new standards and technologies for the organization of data and information. The survey is part of the three-year project "Building a Workforce of Next Generation Librarians for 21st Century Global Information Access" funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (2014-2017). Through this survey, we aim to conduct a detailed needs assessment and gain a better understanding of desired resources, services, and features needed to support professional development in emerging standards and technologies that play essential roles in managing information in today’s digital environment.

We are interested in your participation because of your education and career background in cataloging and metadata. The following link will lead you to the survey:

Participation in the survey is anonymous and voluntary. The survey should take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact me at [log in to unmask] at any time. For questions about the IMLS grant project itself, please contact the project PI, Dr. Jung-ran Park ([log in to unmask]).

Please complete the survey by January 15, 2015. Your assistance in providing invaluable information about this topic is much appreciated.
