Summary The survey was designed to assist the investigators in gaining an understanding of the future role of the cataloguing specialisation within the library profession. The data was originally collected to assist in the production of a conference paper for the Australian Library and Information Associations 5th New Librarians Symposium (NLS5); Metamorphosis: what will you become today.

The survey asked respondents several questions; including : Do you believe the traditional skills of cataloguers are transferable to other roles, for example metadata creation and analysis, search interface development, and reference services?; Do you believe that library courses need to change their curriculum to become more relevant to employers of cataloguers?; Do you believe there will be a role for cataloguers in the future?
General notes The data was collected on Deakin University Library’s Survey Monkey account. The survey asked 14 questions, including multiple choice, closed and open ended questions. 633 respondents answered some or all of the 14 questions asked.The survey was sent out over a number of listservs (including aliavic@lists.alia.org.au,alianewgrad@lists.alia.org.au, npdg-l@infoserv.inist.fr), and shared on Facebook and Twitter accounts. The survey was answered by a range of library professionals (including librarians, library technicians, library assistants, LIS students), across the world, including Australia and America. The statistics of the data was analysed automatically by survey monkey, which automatically compiles and organises the data, and produces pie charts. The comments were organised in relation to a specific question.
