Cataloging Training Survey

This survey request was posted to several e-mail lists.
This survey is for librarians who have supervised a library science intern or practicum student in cataloging. A great deal of discussion about cataloging education has been raised in the library community as of late, and we feel an important component of cataloging education is the practicum/internship experience.

Our intent is to include the survey results in a journal article that examines cataloging practicum/internship experiences and offers guidelines to both students and supervisors on how to create a successful cataloging practicum/internship experience. If you supervised a library science graduate student internship or practicum, we invite you to participate in this survey.

The survey is eleven questions long and should take approximately fifteen minutes. All results will remain completely anonymous. The survey is completely voluntary, and your completion of the survey implies your consent to participate in this study. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate in this survey. You are not required to answer every question and can choose to skip to the next question. The study has fulfilled the requirements for conducting human-subject research. Please provide as much detail about your experiences as possible.

The survey will be available through December 8, 2007. If you have any questions, please contact Melanie McGurr at the Ohio State University , or Ione Damasco at the University of Dayton,

21 Nov. 2007. This survey is closed.
