Don,

That's an important point. It's not the amount of data, but how well it's
organized and how easy it is to find it and navigate through it.

Thank you John.

We have several CCs with IGP who do a great job of setting up content and
menus that promote easy navigation. I have less trouble with the content
than I do navigation, the ability for researchers to quickly find that
content.

Thanks all.

Don
