Connecting Heritage with the web

This came into me from a friend who runs the fabulous Voices of the Past  site

http://www.voicesofthepast.org

Throughout the world, people are connecting about heritage preservation issues on an unprecedented level. One of the ways they are doing this is through “social media,” the term applied to online tools that inspire conversation and interaction. These tools are generally both easy to use and free.

The web address below will take you to ten questions regarding how you use the web and your perceptions of how social media may be used to improve the work of those involved in heritage professions. This anonymous questionnaire is one part of an ongoing study on the topic. This is an open link, so please feel free to forward copies to your colleagues.

Thank you in advance for taking 5-10 minutes out of your day to participate. We will use your feedback to evaluate information and training needs for these topics in the context of heritage preservation. Results will be shared through a Creative Commons license.

Thanks again,

Jeff Guin, National Center for Preservation Technology and Training
