Winner of Survey Drawing

The accessCeramics team recently surveyed a group of accessCeramics users to help improve the accessCeramics collection and web site. Those taking the survey were eligible to win a $100 gift certificate.

I'm pleased to announce that Steve Hilton is the winner of the gift certificate.

We'll have more about our survey results on this blog in the near future.
