"I found the webinar very useful. Having access to high caliber speakers without having to make time and find money to travel to a conference is amazing."

"Participation in the Tools Network has been an incredibly valuable experience for me. I've learned about a great variety of tools I didn't know were available. I've talked with many people working on concerns similar to mine, which has broadened my perspective and given me new ideas. And I've developed new collaborations that may not have been possible otherwise. Thank you! It’s a great initiative that helps rapidly advance the use of tools."
