Another date for this workshop has been added! “Describing Photographs in the Online Environment” will be offered by the SAA in New York City on November 7. Get an in-depth review of the major emerging standards for the online description of physical photographs, with an emphasis on data structure standards such as the Dublin Core and VRA 3.0; content standards such as the new CCO (Cataloging Cultural Objects), DACS, Graphic Materials; and data value standards such as the Art and Architecture Thesaurus and the Thesaurus for Graphic Materials. Collection-level description, item-level description, and traditional finding aids are discussed in detail. Program runs from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. To register and for more information contact Solveig DeSutter, or Jodie Stauffer in the SAA Professional Education Department, at: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel: 312-922-0140; or see Website: http://www.archivists.org/prof-education/workshop-detail.asp?id=1597
