The NMDC's monthly newsletter has been published since 2001, containing an update on NMDC activities and news from the museum sector and beyond. It is widely circulated to senior museum staff, cultural agencies, policy makers and politicians. Six months ago we introduced a new email and web format and we're keen to know what you think.

This survey should only take 3 minutes to complete and it is anonymous so please tell us what you really think!
