Can you spare a few minutes to answer a museum storage survey?

Museums Studies student Paula Nichols from the University of Leicester is writing her dissertation on the issue of the future of collecting and lack of adequate storage space in museums.

The Fast Forward report conducted by Renaissance West Midlands in 2010 showed that many museums stores were already at capacity, and others would achieve this within 5 years.  Paula has devised a short, 5-question survey on the current state of museum collections that will provide her with more up-to-date data, and she is hoping you can help out.
