Question:

How can I ensure that my writing quality is high?

Answer:

Write drafts! If you know you'll be writing more than one draft, then it frees you to be creative and prolific in your first draft. You should not plan to have perfect writing in your first draft. Instead, go back and edit after your first draft has been written. The first edit should be for content and flow (e.g. Does what I'm writing make sense to the reader? If not, how can I change it so that it does?). You can repeat this editing process as often as is needed. The last edit should be for polish. At this stage, after the content has been edited, you proofread. After you've proofread your own work, it's a good idea to ask another person to proofread your work with their fresh set of eyes.

Question:

How can I find information I need in my library's catalog?

Answer:

Unlike the card catalogs in the old days, which had standardized cards that looked alike in every library, the online catalogs look different depending on which library you use. Once you locate the catalog on the library's website, the search for information becomes easier. All online library catalogs can help you locate the following: * Books that you can check out on a subject, person, or idea. * Books that you can check out on a related topic to your original search. * Books that you can check out with more context on your original search topic. * Resources that cannot be checked out but that can provide more information on your original search topic. If in doubt, ask a librarian. Librarians love to connect people with available resources!

Help! What's the difference between "its" and "it's"?

Answer:

"Its" shows belonging or possession. Example: The dog loves its new chew toy. "It's" is a shortened way of saying, "It is." Example: It's raining in Seattle.
