The VRA Core is a data standard for the description of works of visual culture as well as the images that document them. The standard is hosted by the Network Development and MARC Standards Office of the Library of Congress (LC) in partnership with the Visual Resources Association External Link. Questions about the standard’s schemas and documentation should be directed to vracore@vraweb.org. Questions about the official Core website or list should be directed to ndmso@loc.gov.

This site will host all VRA Core user support materials including FAQs, Cataloging Examples, and Presentations.  If you have Core-related tools or examples that you have developed and would like to share with the user community please contact the VRA Core Oversight Committee for posting to this site.
