What I learned from the website http://shelleygodwinarchive.org is that they provide an abundance amount of information on each of Mary Shelley’s work. Not only do they have extensive information on her work they also scan and translate each page. Making Mary Shelley’s work available to the public is amazing but the fact that you can access her archive through the website is even better. The benefits to archival research would be that not everyone is aware that archives like this even exist (I sure didn’t). To be honest nearly everyone relies on technology for most research that even books are being used less and less with research let alone archives. So, using archival research can make your paper much more interesting as the documents used will most likely not be used by someone else. The struggles of archival research would be that it may be a lot harder to access if they are not at a location nearby and not on the internet.
