Librarians are masters of information, skilled at helping you refine research topics, locate credible sources, and even polish your citations.

Making mistakes is a vital part of the learning process - particularly if you take the time to review them! It can be tempting to receive a grade on your work, and then never think about it again. However, engaging with the feedback you receive is an excellent study skill that helps you retain the information and grow even more from the experience. You can write down responses to feedback in a notebook, and you can also meet with your instructor to go over any points that you are still unclear about.
