Invitation to participate in a study of metadata training


We are conducting a study of the training received by those creating metadata for digital collections in cultural heritage institutions. This study aims to provide a better understanding of how professionals are being prepared for digital collections metadata creation, and provide information that can be analyzed it in conjunction with knowledge gained from other types of studies in order to help the community determine which types of training are most effective.


The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and is voluntary and anonymous. We would like to know about the type of institution and the state in which you work, but these responses will not be attributed to specific respondents. There are no direct risks or benefits from participation.
