The goal of this site is to provide all the necessary tools for students to conduct research and to present their findings. Site provides a Quick Click to Search Engines, annotated Research, Writing, and Style Guides (MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, CGOS, CBE, Harvard), and Worlds of Knowledge housing some of the best education Web sites in a Virtual Library arranged by the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system. The DDC, created in 1873 by Melville Dewey, aka Melvil Dewey and Melville Louis Kossuth Dewey was first published in 1876. Web sites in this virtual library are organized somewhat loosely by subject according to recent editions of the DDC.

This site also provides guidelines on: How to write an A+ research paper, How to effectively deliver a presentation, How to format a research or term paper, How to quote passages using MLA style 7th ed., How to avoid plagiarism, How to write Footnotes and Endnotes in MLA 6th ed. with examples on writing First Footnotes and Endnotes in MLA Style 6th ed. plus a Footnotes Sample Page in MLA 6th ed. and an Endnotes Sample Page in MLA 6th ed..

Please note: With the 2009 publication of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 7th Edition, the traditional method of writing first Footnotes and Endnotes to cite sources have become obsolete, however, with Parenthetical Documentation you can still use Notes to add content and bibliographic notes when needed. See MLA Handbook 7th ed. (ch. 6.5) for information on Using Notes with Parenthetical Documentation or Content and Bibliographic Notes. Documenting sources in the text of your essay is much simpler by using only Parenthetical Documentation for citations followed by a Works Cited page at the end of the essay. Web pages based on the new MLA style 7th ed. (2009) are now available. Web pages based on MLA style, 6th ed. (2003) will remain accessible on this site for the time being.
