First, a classic joke: what did the one librarian say to the other lib… shhh!!!
Okay, so it isn't a classic. I made it up. The point is: libraries are cool. I know, it sounds lame – I agree. However, if you ever needed a place to study after school, and had a home with one computer, two parents, and three big brothers – you'll know exactly just how awesome a library can be.
Libraries have changed a lot in the past years. More and more of them are making room for computer, tablets, scanners, printers – technologies necessary for students who seek to make the most of their academic studies.
One way in which students can make the most of their visit to the library is to ask the librarian. As libraries become more digital and computerized, the librarian becomes the go-to person for students doing research or writing.
The librarian can be of great help. They know all of the best places to get quality information. I say quality information because as we all know, the internet is, well, the internet.
Librarians should be given more credit for what they do. They do a great job of separating the good research websites from the bad, thus helping a whole generation of students produce high-quality papers, and advance their education. Librarians can also help out with proofreading, editing, and writing.
They are usually very knowledgeable in the field of copyright information. They can point you to trusted and reliable sources, and save you the embarrassment of having to face a plagiarism accusation by your teachers over the latest paper you submit.
Libraries are there to help you out. A lot of them are open to the general public, so make sure you make good use of them. There is a world of knowledge out there, just waiting for you to reach out and grab it.
