This survey of processing practices large pictorial collections was the first snapshot of these collections in NSLA libraries. The survey aimed to elicit general information about the development and management of pictures collections, as well as more detailed aspects of their use and discoverability.

The primary goal of the survey was to understand and analyse those collection types and workflows that could not be managed within reasonable timeframes, current operational practices or existing resources; or that triggered multiple or complex issues.
