I am reaching out on behalf of the Art Institute of Chicago, J. Paul Getty Museum, National Gallery of Art, and Philadelphia Museum of Art regarding a study these institutions are conducting on their digital catalogues. We are inviting individuals who
have a professional interest in using museum publications to participate in a survey to gather feedback on various digital catalogues so that we can improve these publications for researchers and other audiences. The survey invite is below. Would it be possible
to send this email out to your department or particular individuals who might be interested? We would deeply appreciate any assistance you can give in helping us recruit participants.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
