General VMCAS Legacy Information

Welcome to the Visual Materials Cataloging and Access Section (VMCAS) Legacy Page!

The purpose of VMCAS was to provide a forum at each SAA annual meeting for archivists and others working with visual collections to discuss cataloging and access issues including - but not limited to - description methods, digitization, cataloging tools and standards, and other esoteric topics.
