In our recent class discussions, we’ve reviewed the methodology for historical research. In the past, when I researched a particular topic, I’ve had to walk from library to library. There was a great deal of travel. I would store my notes and bibliographic data on many 3 x 5 Index Cards. It also meant that I was carrying books everywhere.
Here we have an option for handling large amounts of data. Watch, listen, and pity me for the hassle I endured when in college.
