Dear Website contact person,

As part of an ongoing research project designed to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander access to the Internet, the Koori Centre is conducting a survey of Websites which are designed by for or about the Indigenous Australian population. It is intended that the results of this survey will form the basis of a paper to be presented at the Literacy and Educational Research Network conference to be held in Alice Springs in October.

It would assist us greatly in this task if you or another appropriate person could take a few minutes to complete the following questionnaire. All results will be presented only in summary form and responses from individual Websites will *not* be identified.

The simplest way to respond would be to send a reply to this mail, quoting the original message and editing in your responses at the appropriate places. If you are responsible for more than one such site, please provide a seperate response for each one.

If you have any questions regarding the questionnaire, its purpose, or the project, please do not hesitate to contact me.
