     Hello!  I am Lynn Kozuboski - a graduate student of library science at
the University at Albany (majoring in school library media).  I also teach
art at Union-Endicott Sr. High in Endicott, New York.

     I need your professional and creative input regarding multimedia
authoring and would appreciate it if you would take the time to respond to
this questionnaire.   The results will be used in my seminar paper to finish
my degree.  I also hope to develop correspondences with those of you who are
as enthusiastic as I am about multimedia and wish to share experiences and

I have been using Linkway Live with my art history class.  Students have
produced presentations and "electronic research papers" which are wonderful.

Please take a moment to fill in this survey and e-mail it back to me at
Koz27@aol.com.  If you would like a copy of the results let me know.
Thanks in advance.
