Researchers in the Department of Apparel, Housing, and Resource Management and University Libraries at Virginia Tech seek participants in a research study (#22-705) that aims to identify terms to describe clothing and textiles that can be added to the CostumeCore metadata schema.

Eligible participants include directors, curators, managers, and staff of U.S. university dress/costume and textile collections who describe, catalog, and process artifacts into their collections. Participants must also be 18 years or older and living in the United States. Participants will complete an online survey, which will take approximately 20 - 60 minutes to complete.

The survey can be accessed at https://virginiatech.questionpro.com/t/AWJOMZuLuj and will be open until Dec 1, 2022.
For your convenience, a PDF with all the survey questions can be viewed in advance at https://bit.ly/3Tfv5zj
