CCO For Your Community

Image Collections

Welcome to the CCO Commons

the online home of Cataloging Cultural Objects: A Guide to Describing Cultural Works and Their Images, a data content standard for the cultural heritage community.  The Commons includes cataloging examples, training tools and presentations for use by practitioners, in addition to excerpts from the CCO print publication. Sponsored by the Visual Resources Association Foundation, CCO activities center on educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of cataloging best practices for the museum, image collection, library, and archival communities.
