Subject: Library and Information Science
I am writing an article about diversity in academic libraries. Where is a good place to start my research?
I would suggest looking at the American Library Association's (ALA) website for Diversity Standards. This site provides standards for diversity in libraries, definitions to help users understand exactly what each standard means, and an explanation for each diversity standard.
Where can I find information about the effects of divorce on children?
There are several electronic resources available to help you find the information you need. I would suggest beginning your research with a government agency that has study studies on this topic or may have some statistics that could help your research. One of those agencies is the Family Research Council. Here is a link to a study they completed in 2012:https://www.frc.org/EF/EF12A22.pdf. If you would like more updated information, or if you would like scholarly resources for this topic, I would suggest searching Google Scholar with the topic "effects of divorce on children." I see that there are over 973,000 results in that list. I would be happy to help you navigate some of those resources if you need further assistance.
Where can I find information about citing articles using the American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines?
You can access information about citing articles in the APA citation format from several resources. The Writing Lab provided by Purdue OWL is one source that provides information about citing resources in this format.
