Testimonial by Katie "Kiki" Richardson

Testimony about how much the RPG Research repository helped her with research when the university databases were inadequate.

Hi! I'm Kiki and I just wanted to drop you a little note to let you know how helpful your site has been. I just finished a paper for one of my writing classes on the benefits that RPGs can have on people with social anxieties and other social problems. While I was able to find a few articles through the usual databases like JSTORE and EBSCOHOST, I was really struggling to meet the required amount of sources. Thankfully I found your site and I was easily able to find sources that supported my thesis and that helped me get to that magical "10 sources needed" goal, and even beyond (I ended up with 18 source, several of which I found on your site). What you've compiled helped what had started to look like an incredibly stressful struggle of a project into something that I was easily able to finish. While I still need to fix a few things before turning it in tomorrow night, I went over most of the paper today with my professor, and he was impressed. I know that would not be the case had I not found your site. Thank you so, so much for maintaining such a helpful and interesting site.
