*Dear colleague,* On May 3rd we sent out a survey and asked you to share
your opinion with us about your collection management system. We are
interested in obtaining an inventory and user evaluations of collection
management database systems currently used by natural history museums to
gain insight into system performance. We are particularly interested in how
users experience working with their system. So far, we've received 86
responses and we want to thank all of you who already filled out the survey for
your time! But of course, the more responses the better. Therefore we would
like to bring our survey to your attention once more. We will start
processing all responses in August, and would be most grateful to any new
respondents! It takes about 15 minutes to complete the survey and it may be
completed anonymously (please answer the questions in English).  Of course
feel free to forward the survey to your colleagues. We are happy to share
the results with you in anonymized form. If you would like a copy of the
results, please fill out your e-mail address at the end of the survey.
