CCO (Cataloging Cultural Objects) is the first building block in creating standardized data that can stand the test of time and be migrated into future digital initiatives. However, the 2017 Cataloging and Metadata Practices Survey showed that many respondents were not familiar with CCO, and that both new VRA members and veteran catalogers are likely to be dealing with modified "in-house" data entry guides. Find out what you may have been missing! CCO gives a solid foundation in structuring and storing your data for the 21st century, and guides to standardizing data content, both for data entry and for public display and use, including Linked Open Data (when combined with a data structure schema and RDF.) This session will be the perfect opportunity to get exposure to CCO concepts and training, with a Q&A segment as well.
