Name the forms of electronic information common to many libraries.
Today's libraries contain a variety of electronic information that their users can access. The most common form of electronic information is found in a library's catalog or OPAC, which stands for online public access catalog. From this form, users can see which resources or items this library has. Users can then click and link to eBooks, journal or database articles, specific websites, as well as traditional print collections too. Many libraries cater their homepages to allow for mobile or smart phone technology and access. A lot of library services are located on their homepage as well and users can request items without ever stepping inside of them. With the user of certain databases, users can create accounts with certain searches saved and be notified whenever new information, such as articles, are published and made available to them on those saved searches and/or subjects.

How did the Columbian Exchange change both the New and Old Worlds?
Europeans brought with them diseases that decimated native populations throughout America. This was an advantage to European powers, such as Spain, which wished to colonize and control both people and valuable resources in the Americas. The introduction to new plants and animals by way of the Columbian Exchange transformed both cultures and societies. New crops such as wheat, potatoes, and corn became new pillars in people's diets. Cattle, horses, and pigs transformed not only farming in the Americas, but transportation and warfare alike. And last but not least, gold and silver lifted European economies and easily placed them among the world's most dominant countries.

How did Indians respond to the various European countries that conquered their land while they were at war with each other?
Indians did not have a uniform response to all of the European countries that were in America and subsequently fighting wars with each other. Some Indian tribes created partnerships and worked with certain countries; others fought them. Because Indians could not agree, their allegiance was often divided between them on the various European countries. Some tribes became friends with certain European countries and benefited from trade by acquiring materials they could use to defend themselves against other countries. For example, Indians befriended the French and traded with them to fight their enemies, which often were other tribes as well as other European countries.
