I have now exhausted three different librarians with my research question, leading me to believe that either (a) I'm onto something really interesting and unique or (b) I am completely unable to coherently formulate what I'm looking for


I suspect it's some combination of both. not knowing enough to know whether or not you know enough to even formulate a question is very frustrating

although having license to blithely power ahead without being secure in this knowledge is one of the benefits of being an artist

@aparrish OK, now I'm curio. Please tell me what this is about.

@aparrish Maybe you'll have the joy of publishing your thing and becoming a domain expert. Then when you ask librarians to help research, they'll send you to your own work!
