Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

We have gotten all necassary support from every library we visit to do the reserch.

  • What did not work so well?

Well, due to Covid 19 pendamic we have experienced difficulties in accessing the librarie on the time we want, and we find it difficult that some days the libraries are off due to End_SARS protest chaos, due to this, we have been shifting our scheduled dates onward to a suitable time. The End Sars protest also affect our transportation.
