Welcome to the 2019-2020 NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) User Survey. This survey consists of 24 questions designed to help us gather your feedback regarding the current NED content and services, and to help us establish priorities for planning future NED developments. The results will help us optimize a proposal to the 2020 NASA Astrophysics Archival Programmatic Review, which will establish priorities and funding levels for the next few years of NED development and operations.

Your contributions are very important to help us better understand and serve the changing needs of the NED user community, and we thank you for taking the time to respond. (Typical time spent: 7 mins)
