1. Does your home have CAC or AC Units?

2. Does your job now, or any job you ever had, have early days off in the Summer?

3. What is the most romantic thing anyone has done for you?

I believe that was one of the insults you hurled at PKA.

You have that quote?

And I'm a librarian.  This is kind of what we do.

I don't know what you're talking about. As I said yesterday, I'm a WOH, homeschooling mom of five. Does that sound like someone else you know?

You work OUTSIDE of the home AND homeschool?

"You're a professor, right? I assume you've been published. Why would anyone doubt your credentials when referencing citations, academic or otherwise?" ------------- This is a good question. It so happens that several of the women who post here work in universities or with academics. We may not know much, but we are familiar with citations.

"You work OUTSIDE of the home AND homeschool?" ------- Not as unusual as you may think. Presumably there is also a Mr. Norris and perhaps a nanny and/or tutor.

"I do know how citations work" ------------------- You have amply demonstrated in your last 20 or so posts that you do not know what they are or how they work. Several people have kindly explained to you what they are, how they work and where they can be shared (everywhere, anytime), so I hope this discussion was useful for you.

Yes. I WOH (part time, as I said yesterday) and I homeschool. Please tell me I'm not going to have to defend my right to educate my children as I see fit. I work. I homeschool. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I do know how citations work and I'm not comfortable sharing what I pulled from my library website here, Why does that translate to not knowing what I'm talking about? That has become the weapon of choice when there's nothing else to debate actually...  But the google engine search that I did find I'm sure that doctor was compensated well for, If you don't like it or that is not good enough for you that's not my problem. Back to where your support lies and why the testy calls at professionals that are qualified - if not more - than you...

Jambles, if you knew how citations worked, you would not be making the kinds of mistakes you are making this morning. It is also not "testy" to point out there is a difference between the citation style one uses in a newspaper column/blog post vs an academic journal.

Go ahead. Ask your professor or a librarian if there are any restrictions on posting *citations*, not full articles, *citations* online in a public forum. Seriously, I don't know any other way to explain this, but even if the article is in a subscription database, it is perfectly legal to post the citation information (title of article, journal, author, pub. date, volume, etc) anywhere for any reason at any time.
