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

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely yours,
