The speakers turn on. Static clicks. And a voice reads “Your starting lineup for the Texas A&M Aggies is …” Spectators hear that...

WEBSITE REVIEWS

www.Questia.com


Online Library

(Grade: A)


Now students can forget about going to the library only to spend hours wandering around the endless aisles of books only to find that the one book they want is not there.
Questia.com is an online library that does more for students than help them find sources. It keeps students from having to go to stuffy libraries in general.
Students can use the Website not only to research papers and find sources, but also to read an entire text online and print pages for free. When reading the text online, users can highlight on the text and put in their own notes.
Questia.com automatically creates footnotes and a bibliography while the user researches and uses the text and students have the option of choosing how they want their footnotes and bibliography formatted.
It is easy to search the site and users will be amazed at how much information is readily available through Questia.com. Searches by author, keyword, subject or title can be performed.
Benefits of the site are that it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and students never have to worry about books being checked out, due dates or late fees. The only catch is that a monthly subscription fee is required to use the site regularly but the money is worth the convenience.
Questia.com is a site any student who dreads going to the library can appreciate, and as it says on the site, because research is done in the privacy of the user’s home, clothing is optional.
AggielandMenus.com


Online Menus

(Grade: B)


Anyone who has ever had the late-night munchies definitely will appreciate Aggielandmenus.com.
This site offers access to local restaurant menus 24 hours a day and is very easy to navigate.
There are links for different kinds of restaurants, including carry out, delivery, catering, breakfast, lunch and dinner links. Beyond those, there is a link for finding coupons, which are invaluable to college students.
Users also can search for restaurants by name or by the type of food they are craving such as American, Chinese, Italian, etc.
The only problem with this Website is that a lot of the restaurants listed do not yet have their menus posted. This is because the site is fairly new and many restaurants may not know about it yet. Restaurants hoping to get their menu online can register with the site.
The Website offers a thorough listing of what each restaurant has to offer.
For example, the Double Dave’s link tells the prices, forms of payment, locations of the restaurant and the phone numbers for each, hours of operation and even has maps available for those who are unfamiliar with the area.
This is a very useful site, but definitely will be a better resource when more restaurants are registered.
