Handouts and links to help you with revising your essays for content and grammar.

Explanation of LibGuides & Tabs

During August 2018, we will be updating and redesigning our LibGuide in two ways: 

  1. We will be going through all of our handouts and links to add, update, or delete resources.
  2. Each subject will have its own big tab containing the handouts and links for it.  For example, you will see an "Art" tab, and the page will have handouts and links for this subject. You would no longer have to click on "Handouts" and "Resource Links" for materials to help you with your art essay.
     

If you see a tab that has "New Page Under Construction" in the heading:

  • It means we are still working to populate the handouts and links. As we create and locate resources for you, we will upload them to the subject tabs. 
  • Do not worry if a page is blank!  It just means we are still collecting information for this subject. 
     

However, the "Anti-Plagiarism" big tab is almost finished. 

  • For information about avoiding plagiarism and how to paraphrase and summarize, go to the Avoiding Plagiarism and How to Cite subject tab.
  • If you need help understanding what plagiarism is and how you can avoid it, read these documents and check back for additional websites.
  • Warning!: If a tutor has found plagiarism in your essay, you should review these documents before revising anything else in your essay.

HCC’s library system has LibGuides (http://library.hccs.edu/home) corresponding to some programs of study (or relevant topics), course projects, and topics of interest.  Within a LibGuide are resources and learning tools to help students learn about the respective subjects.  Resources are collected by instructors and librarians, so you know the materials are reliable. 

We have created this LibGuide as a learning tool for our handouts and links for content, grammar, and how to avoid plagiarism.  These resources will help you revise your essays!  The site is also mobile friendly, allowing you easily to view and save these documents on your smartphones.  

A LibGuide has main tabs and smaller tabs called "sub-pages" to conveniently organize information.  The main tabs contain sub-pages for content queues and other relevant categories, such as grammar and punctuation.  The content labels correspond to what you see in Upswing (online tutoring).  Part of our redesign is to make it easier for you to find information for grammar, writing, and subject areas.

We hope you find this LibGuide useful!

Tutoring services--which are free!--are available only to current HCC students (full-time, part-time, and dual credit) for their HCC courses. For example, if are enrolled in ENGL 1301 at HCC but a history course at another institution, tutors will only help you with ENGL 1301.  To make the most out of your session with a tutor, bring or upload:

  • A copy of the instructions for your assignment.
  • Specific questions about your assignment.

Midterm and the end of the semester are the busiest times for tutors.  Try to get help in plenty of time for a tutor to review your work and for you to revise your assignment.
