Survey on information technology in cultural institutions

From: Viet Nguyen <vnguyen>
Date: Wednesday, July 12, 1995
The National Museum of Australia, National Library of Australia,
National Gallery of Australia and Australian War Memorial in a Joint
Middle Management Program are investigating the use of Information
Technology in Cultural Institutions.

A report will be prepared on The Use of Information Technologies in
Cultural Institutions. Recommendations will be made on the best use
of these technologies. Another objective of the program is to set up
a network of professionals with interests in Information

As representatives of these institutions, we would appreciate
responses to the attached survey. The survey will help us to
evaluate where the different technologies are being used within the
Cultural Institutions. If this is not your area of expertise it
would be much appreciated if the survey form is passed on to the
appropriate member of staff at your Institution.

The completed survey form should be returned to the sender
(vnguyen [at] nla__gov__au) by 28 July 1995. Your prompt response will be
much appreciated as this project is working to a deadline.
