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.

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.
