SURVEY: Integrating Non-MARC Metadata Production into the Duties of
Traditional Catalogers


          You are invited to participate in a brief national, online
survey.  The objective of this survey is to research the national trends
in the integration of Non-MARC metadata work into the duties of
traditional catalogers and the perceptions and attitudes catalogers hold
towards non-MARC metadata.



            For this study we would like to invite all catalogers in
academic libraries, with or without MLS, who are involved in any aspect
of non-MARC metadata work.  


            I am asking you to please participate by answering this
multiple choice survey. Your answers will be completely anonymous and
confidential and will only be used to summarize information. 

*No* names or institution affiliation will be asked.

withdraw from it at any time. 


It should take approximately 10 minutes to answer the 28 multiple choice
questions of the survey.
