Peter Eastman, formerly of Phila. Museum of Art, has an article on a
similar database project as the one you are describing in the most
recent (1997) Wood Artifacts Group Postprints. I've never used
Access, but I have also done several survey projects in Filemaker
and can recommend it as being one of the more user-friendly
database programs on the market.
