I just recognized something about the creative thesis that I hadn't thought of while I was writing it. At least, I hadn't recognized it completely. I was writing about the control of information. He pointed that out and I had some ideas that I didn't really have time to add, but it didn't really hit me until I was reading some homework for the class that hasn't started yet.

"Should one focus on canons and traditions, or strive for diversity? Should archivists collect documents as amply as possible, or organize what they hold so that it will be more usable; for example, through digitization, which makes some collections accessible through computers?"

The Librarian character - and oddly, I didn't connect his character with the degree I'm going for next until now, either - was hoarding information instead of letting it be freely available. In short, he was creating a collection with a viewership of one. Two, if you count his assistant. Funny the things you think of after you turn in the assignment.
