A Research Guide for Students

by I Lee

Includes a Virtual Library of Useful URLs
arranged by Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC)

To Sitemap

The goal of A Research Guide for Students is to provide all the necessary tools for you to conduct research and to present your 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 Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system. The DDC, created in 1873 by Melville Dewey, aka Melvil Dewey or 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. See also Discord Over Dewey by Andrew Lavallee,, and check out Dewey Decimal Classification: A Practical Manual of 23rd Edition.

From Dewey Decimal by Melissa Cassel: "When he [Melvil Dewey] was a child, he enjoyed reading books. While at school one day, the building caught fire. Melvil gathered as many books as possible from the library. He inhaled the smoke and got a cough, which lasted for several months. Melvil was told that he would not live. He decided to make the most of his time ... Melvil was committed to causes. He was organized in everything that he did. It took Melvil several years before he finally solved the classification of books ... He needed to use the simplest method possible to number the classification of all human knowledge in print." See also: 025.4 Dewey Decimal Classification.

A note from Wikipedia: "Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder is a book by David Weinberger published in 2007. The book's central premise is that there is no universally acceptable way of classifying information. Starting with the story of the Dewey Decimal Classification, Weinberger demonstrates that all attempts to classify inherently reflect the biases of the person defining the classification system."

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.

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 has 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 on this site. Web pages based on MLA style, 6th ed. (2003) will remain accessible.

Updated MLA Style 7th ed. pages include: How to write Parenthetical Documentation using MLA style 7th ed. Parenthetical Documentation Sample Page, Guidelines on Writing a Bibliography or Works Cited Page in MLA style 7th ed., Works Cited, References, and Bibliography - What's the Difference? Works Cited Sample Page using MLA citations 7th ed., and How to Write a Bibliography - Examples in MLA Style, 7th ed. including Internet citation examples.

NOTE: To everyone writing a report, a research essay, a term paper, or creating a Web page on the WWW: All ideas borrowed or sources used that are not your own must be documented and properly acknowledged. Plagiarism in any form is not permissible. Please use your good judgment to choose a variety of reliable sources. Information presented on this site is a guideline only, students are advised to use the type of documentation preferred by your teacher or instructor, including the choice to use MLA Style 6th edition, MLA Style 7th edition or other styles: APA, Chicago/Turabian, Harvard, CGOS, CSE.

History of A Research Guide for Students by I Lee

This site: A Research Guide for Students by I Lee began in July 1998 at (Sites were then assigned to Athens and Acropolis for contents dealing with "Teaching, Education, Reading, Writing, and Philosophy"), then transferred to (Shortly after GeoCities was acquired by Yahoo! on January 28, 1999, the practice of naming sites after real cities or regions according to their content was abandoned in favor of using the Yahoo! member names in the URLs). When the Research Guide was featured on Wall Street Executive Library, hits soared and exceeded the bandwidth allowed by Yahoo! for a free site. So a new domain: was created. When hits reached 30,000 to 40,000 a day in 2006, the domain with a small portion of the content of A Research Guide for Students migrated to UK. On February 7, 2008, was created to retain, maintain and grow from the original Research Guide.

On October 26, 2009, all sites were closed by Yahoo! Someone (David Feinman?) has restored 2,370,970 accounts, archived and moved 31,703,925 pages from to, and later to, and recently has emerged complete with the same contents from October 2009. The Library of the Collective Human Record ( also contains over 50,000 catalogued sites archived from GeoCities (1994-2009).

You may be able to access some of the old web pages at: or with data from 2009. However, if you click on the Title Logo: "A Research Guide for Students by I Lee", for some strange reason, it will take you to the current official site:
