Help needed: online survey about Index Herbariorum and GRBio

Dear Colleague,

Index Herbariorum (IH) has been an important resource for the botanical community for a long time and we’re writing to ask for your advice on how it can be improved.  IH entered into a partnership with the Global Registry of Biodiversity Repositories (GRBio) several years ago to take advantage of its newer user interface and to integrate information about herbaria and zoological collections.  GRBio was developed and is managed by the Consortium for the Barcode of Life (CBOL).  We now seek your advice on how well GRBio is meeting the needs of the botanical community.

Could you please give us 10-15 minutes of your time to complete a brief online survey about IH and GRBio?  Your anonymous responses will be summarized and shared at an upcoming workshop that will be designing the next version of GRBio.  This is your opportunity to help ensure that it serves the needs of botanists. Your feedback will be most helpful if you respond by March 12.

Thanks for helping us!
