Dear colleagues,

We are conducting a survey about cataloging ethics, and we need your help. We would like to invite those individuals currently working in public, academic, school, or special libraries, or an archive or museum, whose official job duties include cataloging, primarily using “traditional” library cataloging standards, such as Machine-Readable Cataloging (MARC), Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, 2nd edition (AACR2), Resource Description & Access (RDA), Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), Library of Congress Classification (LCC), and/or Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), to complete the following survey:

We would like to learn more about how catalogers perceive cataloging ethics, the most important ethical issues they face in their work, and how they address these issues. Please pass the survey along to anyone or any group who might be interested in completing it.

The survey should take about 10-15 to complete and no identifying information will be collected unless you choose to supply your name and contact information for a follow-up interview (and that information will only be used for the purposes of the study).  The deadline for completing the survey is February 10, 2019.

Thank you in advance for your help!
