Offsite Day 6

Start time: 9:30
End time: 5:00
Hours Worked: 7.5
Total Hours: 41.5

Between yesterday and today, I thought of some more data I should try to compile, so that was one of the main things that I did today.  I think this new set of data gives me some really interesting information about how Wikipedia aided me in subject cataloging.  I also read some articles, one of which I felt will help me a great deal, and found some new articles.  I also started thinking about how I'm going to structure the paper and started writing a little bit.

Offsite Day 5

Start time: 9:30
End time: 5:30
Hours Worked: 8
Total Hours: 34

The main thing I did today was compile more data, some of it new, and compare it with data that I had compiled previously. I found some discrepancies between the two data sets and had to resolved them.  The data that I compiled was much more specific than the data I had compiled previously.  I also realized that one ETD I had cataloged had not been included within the previous data I had compiled, so I fixed the old data.  I also thought about how I was going to use the new data I had compiled, and if I needed to compile any more data.
