Reminder: NSC Alliance Survey Looks at Economy and Natural Science 
Collections -- Please Complete the Survey Online Today

Two years ago as the economy was entering recession, the Natural 
Science Collections Alliance (NSC Alliance) conducted a survey to 
gather data on the effects of the economic downturn on natural 
science collections. To further our understanding of how natural 
science collections are being impacted by and responding to current 
economic conditions, the NSC Alliance is repeating the 2008 survey. 
All natural science collections, including natural history museums, 
herbaria, living collections, tissue and genetic collections, etc, 
are encouraged to complete this online survey. The survey should not 
take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Individual institutional 
responses will remain confidential.

Please complete the survey now at 
http://nscalliance.org/?page_id=314. The survey will close on 20 
September 2010.

Additional information about the 2008 NSC Alliance survey, including 
a link to a publication containing the results, is available at
