How can I prepare for a multiple choice exam?
There are many ways to prepare for a multiple choice exam. Start by organizing your notes from class. It helps to highlight any information that seems especially important. Another way to study for the multiple choice exam is to create flash cards and quiz yourself multiple times with those flash cards. Additionally, it helps to study with a partner or group. Have a friend quiz you on the material in order to test your knowledge before the exam.

How should you answer a reference question vs. a readers advisory question?
When answering a reference question, it is important to conduct a reference interview with the patron and ask open ended questions to really understand the type of information that they’re looking for. When conducting the reference interview make sure to maintain proper eye contact, listen, ask open ended questions and search for an answer. Additionally, ask what type of resources they need such as online resources from databases or a physical resource such as a book or an educational DVD. Finally, follow-up with questions such as "Is this what you were looking for?" When answering a reader's advisory question, get a good understanding for what the patron is looking for. Ask questions such as what they like or what they don’t like to read, what they’re reading now and if they want a short book or a long book to read. Every individual is different and it is important to remember that when providing reader's advisory services. Use online resources such as Goodreads to show the patron books written by authors that are similar to authors they typically are interested in.
What is personification and why is the use of personification essential in George Orwell's book "Animal Farm?"
Personification is the assigning of human characteristics to non-humans such as animals and non living things such as household items. Orwell uses personification in "Animal Farm" in order to bring to light the truths about humankind and how humans behave as a result of having too much power. By attributing human characteristics to the animals, the reader can infer that the story is meant as a parallel to the rise of the Soviet Union.
