I am having trouble logging into my school account. I know my username & password but nothing is working! Please help!
I will be happy to help you with this. We will need to go through a checklist of potential troubleshooting solutions. Please check or answer these questions for yourself. There is no rush. Can you clear the cache or history in your browser? If you're not sure where or what that is, I can help. Have you been receiving emails that your password needed to be updated? You may need to reset your password. Try changing browsers. And lastly, are you currently enrolled and update with your accounts at your institution? Once you check these things, we will try a few more options. We will get this resolved.

I need to write a research paper and I have no idea where to start! I want to know more about type 2 diabetes.
First thing you have to ask yourself, since this is a rather broad topic, what do you want to learn about type 2 diabetes? For example, try this question: "Does obesity cause type 2 diabetes?" Think about what the keywords are...obesity, diabetes... and maybe causes. Once you have settled on a question/topic you want to research, you will need to find the keywords in the question, then do a lot of reading and note taking. Try to find the key points in each resource. From there you will synthesize or combine the information you find into an outline of what you will discuss. This should get you started. To see more information on this topic, refer to this link: https://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED573583.pdf

I need to find a scholarly article on type 2 Diabetes. I don't know what a scholarly article is
I am happy to help you with that. If you would please go to the PubMed link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/ At the top of the screen is a narrow search box, enter the terms 'type 2 Diabetes'. You will receive thousands of results, but not all are scholarly, nor are all available full-text. On the left side of the screen, select customize by Article Type, choose 'Clinical Trial'. You can click all the clinical trial boxes, but for simplicity, just choose clinical trial. Also, choose Free Full Text. If you just need a general article, this should be enough drilling to come up with plenty of choices. Once you choose an article, you will be directed to an external site. Looke for the Full Text link or the PDF link to access the article. A scholarly article usually has an abstract, a literature review, some method of study/experiment, results, discussion and a list of references. Also consider the publication. Is it published by a professional association? Who are the authors? Are their credentials listed? The more of these criteria you can check off, the more likely that this is a scholarly article and not an opinion piece or some other written account.
