Question:

Can you tell me whether the period goes inside the quotation marks or outside?

Answer:

Yes! It depends on whether you are using American or British grammar rules. If you are using American grammar, the period ALWAYS goes inside the quotation marks. So, your sentence would look like this: Laura wanted to know the answer to the question, "what color is your parachute?" If you are using British grammar, you would write: Laura wanted to know the answer to the question, "what color is your parachute"?

Question:

What are keywords and why are they important?

Answer:

Keywords can be any words that get to the nitty gritty of the topic you are researching. Theses are the words that you enter into the search bar to get articles and other sources on your topic. For instance, if you were doing a paper on the history of skateboarding in the U.S. you might choose to search for articles with the words "skateboarding" "history" and "United States." From there, you might want to narrow down your choices a bit more so you might pick some words from the articles that your first search turned up- "urban skateboard parks" and "history."

Question:

I need to write a paper on women's clubs in U.S. History that contains primary sources, can you help me find some.

Answer:

Of course! First we'll need to figure out what aspect of women's clubs you want to write about - so let's find some books and articles that talk about their importance in U.S. History. Once we have that figured out, we can use some different online sources to get you access to primary sources, such as club minutes, membership roles, and more. The Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America is a good place to begin, as is the National Archives.
