I'm not good at remembering things. What are some tips so I can increase my memory for things like quizzes and tests?
There are many ways to help boost your brain power and remember facts! The top three methods I suggest are: 1. Writing out information - Using a pen/pencil and a piece of paper helps this skill be honed because we retain more when we write things down rather than type! 2. Associate a new fact with something you already know - for example, if you learned a new fact about World War II, associate that with a fact you already know about Germany. 3. Do not multitask while studying - When you are studying, make sure you are in a quiet space with no distractions. Try to study from a book/notebook/etc instead of an electronic device because the temptation to stray from the task is less. Do not try to study multiple things at once. Take your studying tasks one at a time and once you've mastered the first, move onto the second.

How do you keep digital materials relevant to the current patrons' needs?
By running specific statistics reports on library databases, we can see which journals and articles are used the most. We can then evaluate the need for additional resources based on the topics students are searching for when they use the library.
How does Jane Eyre change during the course of the novel "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte?
Throughout the novel "Jane Eyre", the main character, Jane, changes in multiple ways. She begins the novel as a shy, easily-intimidated girl and by the end of the novel, she is a strong, confident woman. Throughout the novel, she creates her own set of morals as she reads and becomes more educated. Chapters 26 and 27 are the main turning points in the novel for Jane.
