"Our court shall be a little academe,
Still and contemplative in living art"
--Love's Labour's Lost, 1.1
This section of my website is where I'll post certain research projects I'm working on for my Masters in Library and Information Science degree. While these are assignments I have created for classes; they are not published academic works. If you want to chat about this information or have questions regarding my courses, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM me on Twitter @dreadpiratemama.
So what is a "literature review"? At the graduate/doctorate level, it's a summation of academic literature on a specific topic of interest. Think of it as a precursor to a full-on research project: a decent lit review will point out what's been studied on the topic so far, and shows where that research could/should be headed based on what's missing. For one class, we've spent the entire semester examining any "information community" of our choosing -- that is, any community of people who distribute/seek out information on a shared interest. I opted to explore the online community of people interested in Shakespeare, naturally.
Without further ado, a humble lit review. Anyone looking to cite or reproduce this information must inquire with me first.
