Please find below a message and link to an online questionnaire which is
part of a periodic review, including future funding, of the Arts and
Humanities Data Service (AHDS). The ADS hosts AHDS Archaeology and this
questionnaire is the only opportunity for those who value the service
provided by ADS/AHDS Archaeology to make their views known.
Thankfully, the questionnaire is very short (and there is a prize draw!).
It would be very helpful if list members could spare a few minutes to fill

My name is Robb Ross and I am working on an important project for
JISC/AHRC on use and future funding of the Arts and Humanities Data
Service (AHDS). In order to do this, I am hoping that you can help me to
reach the larger arts and humanities community to gain their views on
this important issue.
As ever, there is an online questionnaire :-)
However, there are only 17 questions and a chance of winning a 2GB
memory stick for two lucky respondents.
The questionnaire is here: http://188.8.131.52:8080/opinio/s?s=102 and
I would be grateful if you could send it to any listservs or online
communities you may be part of. It will only be up for about 2 - 3
weeks (the timescales are really tight), so the earlier you can
broadcast details, the better. I know this is too short a time for any
printed matter, so apologies to anyone who only has access to this kind
Most of the community should be able to access the questionnaire without
any problems (now comes the geeky bit), but it is on 'port 8080' which
may be blocked by some firewalls. Anyone who can't see it from work,
should be able to access it at home as there are less restrictions
(hopefully) on public ISPs, or they could get their IT department to
allow them access via 'port 8080'.
I would like to thank you in advance of any help you can give on this
project, and if you need any further details don't hesitate to contact
me on the address/email below.
