De-lurking here. Finishing up my semester at Pratt, student project due on Cataloging Cultural Objects. If you can take a few minutes to answer as many of the questions as you can, maybe even add some comments, I’ll be very grateful. (Any responses you wish kept off the record will be honored.)
Thanks, Louis in Brooklyn.
1-Do you/your institution use CCO? If so, for how long? If not, any particular reasons?
2-If you don’t use CCO, how familiar are you with it? Self-study, or from other work/interests?
3-How effective are the CCO content standards? Also, do you find it easy to use/implement?
4-What are your favorite/least favorite features? (What do you like best/least about it?)
5-BIG one for my project: Have you seen users’ image searches improve with CCO? Why or why not?
(Any anecdotes, examples, will be extremely appreciated.)
6-CCO: Wave of the future? Or not enough to achieve goals?
7-How easy is CCO to use with other descriptive standards tools & metadata element sets?
8-Whether you use CCO or not, does your work entail more of documenting cultural objects or describing images of objects?
If there is anything you’d like to add that I haven’t addressed, please feel free to include.
Thanks in advance for everyone’s help! Hope I can either return the favor and/or pay it forward, and have a great holiday season, all!
