Knowing that not all students have the same knowledge coming from high school, they have these resources so if students don't know about something they can use the resources and gain some knowledge to succeed further in school. Here is a list of the top 10.

various citation styles

Citations are very important for your research papers for terms of citing other peoples work. Not citing can dock your grades down significantly. So if you are not aware of how to use them than get online on the libraries website and there is a link to citations, where it shows you how to use them.

2. Interlibrary Loan
