How has the pandemic affected your learning experience in the 2020/21 academic year?
Jan 21, 2021
I am also a distance learning student on Opera Studies working on my IRP. The main problem is access to the library that I normally use; some books are available in electronic form but not others. A few that were particularly relevant I have decided to buy, when used books were available. Absence of the real copy can make it very difficult to quote the exact reference (Harvard-style), with page number. One positive note: I e-mailed Frank Trew about two books that I needed and he was able to track down sources that I could use, so this is a feather-in-the-cap for Frank, even when physical library access is impossible.
