Loan-related data entry survey – Documentation standards WG News

The CIDOC Documentation Standards Working Group would like to understand how much time museum staff spend copying-and-pasting, or retyping, information into different systems whenever they lend or borrow objects. They have created a short (8-answer) survey to try to answer this question.

Results will be shared in due course via the DSWG’s website,, and at conferences and workshops as the opportunities arise – hopefully beginning with ICOM Prague 2022 in late August.

Please help by completing the Loan-related data entry survey.
