What is the difference between APA 6th edition and APA 7th edition?
One of the differences between the 6th and 7th edition APA style formatting is that in the 6th edition when citing a source with 3-5 authors you would have to write out each author's last name. Any sources with more than 5 authors would require the first author's name followed by et al. For the 7th edition APA, et al. is used for all in-text citations with sources having more than 3 authors. Another difference is that in the 7th edition when citing an audiovisual source, a timestamp is required indicating the beginning of the quote. This would take the place of the page number within the citation. In the 6th edition, this is not required.
Subject: Library and Information Science
Do we still need libraries and librarians with the vast amounts of information online?
Absolutely. We need librarians and libraries more than ever due to the increase in available information. There is so much information available to anyone that it can be difficult to sort through it all and find information that is relevant to your needs. Librarians can help do this because of their skills and training that allow them to easily navigate both online and in-person. Libraries offer a place for individuals who do not have access to cell-phones and computers a place to come to have the same access to information as everyone else.
What is parallelism?
Parallelism is the use of repetition within ones writing. The repetition can be a single word or a phrase repeated within sentences. The purpose of parallelism is to make an idea memorable. This type of writing is also used to help organize a body of writing.
