What is a thesis statement?
Your thesis statement is a one to two sentences that state the argument that the rest of your paper will be making.
Subject: Library and Information Science
How can I tell if an article is an appropriate source for my research assignment?
Each assignment has different needs, but most research papers require scholarly sources. The best place to search is your library's scholarly databases. When in doubt, perform a CRAAP test! Currency - When was the article written? Is it out of date? Relevance - Is it applicable to your paper? Authority - Who wrote the article? Are they experts in the field? Accuracy - How reliable is the article? Purpose - Why was this article written? Are there any biases to keep in mind?
What is wrong with the following sentence?: Neither my brother nor my sister know how to read.
There is a subject verb agreement problem here! The subject is plural (brother and sister) but the verb is singular (know). To fix the sentence, change know to knows.
