Probably so, but I think labraries are a little more circumspect about collections of “local-ana”.
My step-daughter was required to have her high-school thesis professionally bound in hard cover. I suggested that she ought to find a Wiki article that reaches the same conclusion, and add a footnote to her own work. That would survive for the life of Wiki, and would be a fun entry to her own CV. How many 18-year-olds have a Wiki reference to their work?
