Hi Everyone,

Is it annual reporting time at your institution yet? Wondering what other collections and museums measure? If #collectionMetrics interest you, please take our survey http://bit.ly/museummetrics<https://bit.ly/museummetrics?fbclid=IwAR3NiWLNv1_YACQ7HL5QsK0wNKyn1nMfGIy5QdWwrkCvQpqZ5ctFx1rud7g>. Help us develop an understanding of measurements in use. We'll synthesize what's being measured (or not) in a white paper. From these data, we will also make recommendations, for example, for potential metrics to include in future grant proposals, and a vision for the future of collection metrics (for objects, processes, equipment, space, and staff). The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.
