Subject: Library and Information Science
I need to find out what libraries in my area may have a book I'm looking for. Do you know how I can do that?
Sure, I can assist you with that. I would suggest you use OCLC's WorldCat (worldcat.org). Simply, type in the title of your book, and the site will show you which libraries own it (hopefully one in your area).
Subject: Political Science
I'm working on a political science paper and need to list all the Senators and Representatives for my state and area. Can you suggest some credible websites? Thanks.
Yes, I can assist you with that. I would suggest you look at the following sites: - USA.gov: https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials - United States House of Representatives: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative - United States Senate: https://www.senate.gov/senators/senators-contact.htm - Open States: https://openstates.org/find_your_legislator/
Subject: US History
I'm working on a US History project that deals with people's lives during the Great Depression, and my teacher said I need to use primary sources. Can you tell me what a primary source is and give me a list of online sites that would have primary sources? Thanks! And of course this is due tomorrow.
I'd be happy to explain what a primary source is. A primary source is a first-hand account from a witness at the time. Sources such as newspapers, magazines, diaries, speeches, photographs or videos written at the time period in question. As far as primary sources online, I would suggestion these: - National Archives (https://www.archives.gov/education/research/beginning-activities.html) - American Memory Collection (http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html) - Smithsonian Research Centers (https://www.si.edu/ResearchCenters) - Library of Congress - Finding Primary Sources (https://www.loc.gov/programs/teachers/getting-started-with-primary-sources/finding/) You should be able to find what you need from the sites listed above.
