The Olin Archive
The Olin Archive had its ups and its downs. It was very unpleasant working in it. It is always hot and stuffy. I hate that feeling. However the benifets definetly outweigh the minuses. The Olin Archive was able to give me multiple primary sources that are very useful for my paper. It gave me letters from the Spanish during the era of the Calusa interaction. Besides this, the Archive was also able to provide the images I needed for my research paper. It was difficult for me to find any outside of it but the archive made it easier for my research. All and all I was glad with the product of spending time in the Olin Archive but would prefer to stay out of it.
