For a study that was announced August 15, 2000, on the Conservation
DistLIst, the results of which will be presented at an AIC meeting,
I am asking colleagues to respond to the following 7 questions:

    1.  When did you begin using the Internet to seek practical
        information that could assist you in your hands-on
        conservation work?

    2.  Have you obtained helpful practical information via the
        Internet? If so, please describe one example.

    3.  Have you contributed practical advice via the Internet (on
        the Conservation DistList or another list server, or in an
        e-mail directly to a colleague)?

        If so, please describe one example.

    4.  Have you ever found practical conservation advice that you
        received via the Internet to be confusing, misleading, or
        otherwise inadequate? If so, please describe one example.

    5.  In the future, how many times a year do you expect to go to
        the Internet for practical information, whether for tips
        that are informally shared among colleagues, or for
        published articles that are available to read online?

    6.  What kind of conservation do you practice, and in what

    7.  What is your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail

The goal of this study is to increase the efficiency of
conservators's use of the Internet to find practical information. I
will send a copy of the final paper to anyone who contributes to it
by responding to the above questions and provides his or her name
and mailing address. Conservators who wish to comment but are
concerned about confidentiality should state which details of their
responses (including their own names) may not be disclosed in the
final paper.
