How do I cite a journal article that I found online?
Begin with the author's name, citing as Last Name, First Name. Following that, you should include the title, written within quotation marks ("Title".). After that comes the name of the journal the article appears in (italicized), and then the volume and number of the issue the article appears in (for example, vol. 1, no.1). We follow the volume/issue information with the date of publication of the article/journal and the specific page numbers the article spans. Then, because we are accessing this article online, we need to include the DOI (digital object identifier) and the date that we accessed the article. Our final citation should look like this: Doe, Jane. "Title of Article." Journal of Citation, vol. 1, no. 1, 8 Apr. 1990, pp. 1-2, doinumber. Accessed 1 June 2021.

How can I use boolean operators to get better search results when I'm doing research?
Boolean operators are conjunctions that allow us to broaden or narrow our search results. For example, using quotation marks allows us to search for an exact phrase. Using NOT in our searches will help narrow our results to exclude phrases that are not helpful to us, while using OR will broaden our results to include a variety of phrases or keywords.

There are three orders of classical columns-- Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian. What are the main differences between them?
Ionic columns are the narrowest, with volutes (scroll-like shapes) that decorate the base and top. Doric columns are wider and are topped with simple, rounded capitals. Lastly, the Corinthian order is the most ornate, with the tops decorated with a variety of motifs, such as leaves and scrolls.
