Hi, I’m Josie a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from an other one of our professionals?

Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question.

Also remember that JustAnswer has a multitude of categories to help you with all your needs from Pet to Legal.

Hello, I am a moderator for this topic. Please understand that it’s rare when we cannot find the right professional, but we are unable to find someone to answer this question at this time. However, as one of our valued customers, you are more than welcome to ask another question. Thank you for your understanding.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Relist: I still need help.
Expert:  TheDoctor replied 10 months ago.
Hello and thank you for your question.

I can answer all of these questions, but need a little bit more information.

First, your questions got cut off. It appears that not all of question 18 is posted and questions 19 and 20 are not posted.

Additionally, can you provide a link to "Edseek" I believe you have to go through your school's online library and click on the link to Edseek. You could then try giving me the link to that resource, though I am uncertain if I will have access to it.

Question 12 asks what can be found under "Library Resources" when you click on that in your school. I do not have access to that.

Without edseek, I cannot answer questions 3, 8, 10, 18

And I cannot answer 12, though you should be able to easily answer it. Click on "Library Services" in your classroom and see which link is there.

If you can get me access to edseek, I can answer those other four questions.

And please repost questions 18, 19, and 20 -- since they didn't come through in the thread.

Thank you
