Save time doing web research with these five powerfully helpful sites:
1. Ask a Librarian (www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/): The Library of Congress’ online reference service covers business, law, news and science. Send a question through an online form and get an answer via e-mail. Or chat live with a librarian, Monday through Friday, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.
2. OWL, the Online Writing Lab (owl.english.purdue.edu): The site offers more than 200 free resources, including grammar help, style guides and professional writing advice. E-mail allows OWL tutors to respond personally to brief writing questions.
3. The Phrase Finder (www.phrases.org.uk): Can’t recall a full phrase or saying? Plug in a single word, and this site returns a list of possibilities. For example, a query on “fish” includes everyday sayings such as “shooting fish in a barrel,” as well as famous quotes like “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.”
4. Refdesk.com: Need a fact checked? Look it up here.
5. LibrarySpot.com: It’s like walking into the reference room of your local library. Look up anything: a list of U.S. associations, best companies to work for, links to podcasts, grammar and style guides, etc.
