2. OWL, the Online Writing Lab ( 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 ( Can’t recall a full phrase or saying? Plug in a single word, and this site returns a list of possibilities.

4. Need a fact checked? Look it up here.

5. 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.
