I thought that DIY Academy was really interesting. In high school I had to write a 12 page senior thesis to graduate. I chose to write about George Bernard Shaw and his portrayal of poor people. While doing my research I used the volumes of literary criticism in the library. It was kind of a pain to be honest. I had to go to the library at school that was only open until 4 on the weekdays and wasn’t open on the weekends. This made doing research frustrating because if I read an article that I didn’t use I felt as if I had wasted precious time. That is why I really like how Manhattanville has the periodicals and scholarly journals in databases online. I am to access them 24/7 as long as I am on campus which makes doing research so much easier. So to me making scholarly sources go almost exclusively online is a great thing.
