Data Standards Committee Meeting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Charge: The Data Standards Committee (DSC) was established in 1993 to meet the visual resources community's growing need to manage complex visual collections in the networked environment. Our charge from the Visual Resources Association is "To develop, advocate and promote standard descriptive practices in visual resources collections that will facilitate the management, organization, and exchange of information."

To contact the DSC email datastandards@vraweb.org.

Everyone is encouraged to attend.
