Support is excellent. The newsletters are very good and excellent for future reference. More training always welcome! The system seems so vast that it is at times unwieldy and - with underdeveloped knowledge/user skills - difficult to navigate. EMu help has always been excellent - although sometimes ing back and forth to explain a more complicated problem/request can be time consuming.

I have inadvertently created two MA_I records for images that don't exist. In collection events, can you please globally change Hen & Chickens to Hen and Chickens. Annoyingly I find that collection event for M is still "restricted". Can you please link this to the same CE as M Please fuse multiple taxonomy entries for the following under SPECIES Alcithoe sp. Allodiscus sp. Ammonicera sp. 1 Buccinulum sp. Cytora sp. Diala sp. Gari sp. Kellia sp. 1 Lepidotheuthis sp. Limaria sp. Lissarca sp. 1 Maorithyas sp. Mitrella sp.
