Our database has been built entirely of submissions of our members. It contains essays, book reviews, reports, analyses, critiques, research papers, theses and dissertations. Each piece is originally written by a member and is placed in the database after a screening process described below. Obviously, the quality of submitted works may vary widely, and our members review and comment any work. Should an essay be poorly written, for example, other members will comment and make suggestions for improvement. Thus, the process provides a learning experience for everyone involved, and important information regarding improving academic works is available for all members. Works that are consistently rated poorly are deleted. The user must understand, however, that even poorly written works can still be useful. A poorly written research paper, for example, may actually have wonderfully current and relevant resources that may be used by another student writing on the same topic.
Once a work is submitted, we review it. Until that review is completed, the piece is in the Pending category. Any work in this category can be read by others. Once reviewed, it is placed in the category of Regular or Super, depending on the academic level, complexity and quality of the work.
The process of review and placement into the library is as follows:
- It is first reviewed for quality, including organizational structure, fluency, style, and language usage. A work that is clearly inferior in all ways will be denied. A work that contains errors will still be accepted, if there is important content, good references, etc. – things that would be useful to others.
- We scan each work for plagiarism, using the most sophisticated software detection programs available. This provides a guarantee to our users that it is original and may be used as a reference source and also protects the author’s ownership of the work.
- The piece is then published in the appropriate content field and product type categories, allowing easy browsing by users.
We have over 200,000 academic works, and that number grows daily. These works range from 5-paragraph essays of every type, to research papers of every type and length, to book reviews, summaries, and analyses, to study guides, to graduate-level research works, to theses and dissertations.
- Each work has been peer-reviewed and is rated from one to five stars, based upon quality, content, and grammar.
- All works are written by contributors who are current university students, students enrolled in graduate programs, or graduates, instructors and professors.
- Visitors of our site may browse the entire library and view a 150-word sample of any work as well as a “page view” of the entire piece.
- Members may view any work in total and, for a small fee, may then download that work in Word format. Members also have the option of “trading” a work they wish for a submission of equal level and quality.
- Members also receive free guides for writing every type of academic work.
- All works are categorized by content field, level of complexity, and type.
We have members from all over the world who use our library for a variety of purposes. Obviously, the majority of our users are students who are looking for both content information and for academic works that demonstrate organization and structure of specific types. Our library contains works on virtually every field of study, that's why it is a critical resource tool for both students and individuals who are working in a particular field.
