A New Year a New Survey for University Museums and their users

The surveys for the ‘Wrappers 2’ project are now online and aim to collect feedback from University Museum staff and their users to improve resource discovery of UK University Museum collections.

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and all respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win a complimentary ticket to the OpenCulture 2012 collections management conference at the Kia Oval, London 26th & 27th June.

The findings of the survey will help the project to better understand the landscape of digital provision across UK University Museums and to inform developments of both the Culture Grid and a prototype service to search across UK University Museum collections.

Both surveys will be open until Friday 27th January for initial findings to be available for the University Museums Group conference 7th Feb 2012.

You can take the survey by following the links below, please could University Museums encourage their users to complete the ‘users’ survey.

*University Museum users* should complete the survey at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/umuser

    As the head of a Conservation Department in a university museum with 10+ conservators, should I be surprised not to see ‘Conservator’ as an option in the ‘What best describes your role’ drop-down menu?
