I would like to thank Sharon David, Research Grants and Special Projects Assistant at Queen’s University, for her patient and ongoing support in trouble-shooting issues in setting up DROPBOX for the 4 transcribers working on this project. DROPBOX is a virtual mailbox with secure features for the transfer of data. Sharon, based in Kingston, responded to e-mails days, evenings and weekends in efforts to assist me in dealing with DROPBOX logistics. Meanwhile, in the face of Internet challenges in the North, transcribers were doing their best to get set up with DROPBOX to help manage the volume of data in this project. Sharon’s invaluable assistance was most helpful in keeping the data collection phase of the research on schedule.
