Visual Resources Collections
Image collection managers, Visual Resources curators, and cataloguers will find CCO an invaluable tool for describing cultural works and media. Benefits of implementing CCO in your collection management system include:
CCO provides element-by-element guidance for cataloguing of individual visual works and built works, as well as complexes. Following closely on the VRA Core 4 ensures that image cataloguers will have a complete toolkit for cataloging practice. For example, CCO supports VRA Core 4 practice by prescribing strategies for hierarchical relationships for collection, work, and images.
The Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) has appointed a task force to research and explore options for the continued, sustained, and future development, maintenance, web presence, and administrative structure of Cataloging Cultural Objects (CCO).
The Visual Resources Association Foundation is pleased to announce that a Russian translation of Cataloging Cultural Objects: A Guide to Describing Cultural Works and Their Images is available online. The translation is a project of the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Library, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
