Question:

Where can I find quality sources for research papers?

Inactive

Answer:

The best places to find quality sources for research papers is through books and databases. The best place to access free books and databases is the library. Many libraries include links to databases on their website, so I suggest looking there first. Once you have access to books and databases, think about your research topic. Pull out 5 or 6 words that describe your topic. Use these words to search library catalogs (ask a librarian for more help!) and database search engines. When choosing which article or book to use, make sure you use peer-reviewed articles and other scholarly articles. It doesn't have to be too complicated - dictionaries can be great sources. Once you find a helpful source, check its bibliography or works cited section for more quality sources.

Question:

What is involved in collection development?

Answer:

Collection development includes many parts, including weeding, purchasing, and cataloging materials. Weeding is when a librarian decides to delete materials from a collection due to wear and tear or not enough use. Purchasing materials is when a librarian uses professional sources, such as journals, to buy materials for the library's collections. Cataloging materials is when a librarian decides where in the library's collections the materials will go and assigns each material a call number.

What is the difference between "fewer" and "less?"

Answer:

Use "fewer" when describing something that can be counted. Use "less" when describing nouns that cannot be physically counted. For example: I use fewer ingredients when baking brownies. I have less love for certain people. If you can count it, use "fewer."
