For some reason, the message didn’t go out when Karen sent it.  It might be a list owner thing so I’m going to try it again on her behalf.  The survey monkey tool about wet collection management can be found at the following link:


The link itself works as I just completed the survey myself so let’s see if I send it…  It’s pretty straightforward.  Not sure how long the survey tool will be active (no deadline provided), but it really does only take a few minutes.  Please respond sooner rather than later.

Hi everyone, if this works, I am about to send out a survey monkey for wet collection management. This survey will only take about 2 minutes of your time. Please forward this to anyone who works in wet collections. If I get a decent response, I will let the group know the results. Thanks in advance, Karen
