Since my last post our group has now met several times in Special Collections to discuss our project. We are slowly finding our way through the collection but since we have not been able to meet together recently, we have not made many changes to our plan or contract. At the beginning the contract assignment seemed very vague and open-ended. I am so relieved that we met in groups with Dr. Pearson to further go over the form. In both our own research and in our contract, it is very important that we recognize our focuses. I believe we ought to do that this week and should meet next week to work together. Unfortunately, the idea of shared notes is not catching on. I deeply regret that as it would make it so much easier for us to work separately. Hopefully, one we identify our own topics, we will not need to depend so heavily on each others notes.
