Dear Martin,

I have got some useful experience with
Russian museum curators when talked them about the CIDOC CRM.

In my opinion, they treat the CRM as a tool,
but they don't see any "real-world" (or "day-to-day") tasks to use the tool.

So, I'd suggest to aim (a part of) the introduction at the
"intermuseum" managerial level.

Best wishes,
Vladimir
