    "The Online Writing Lab offers me a great service to when I might be struggling with writing abstracts. The site recognizes that the two main types of abstracts (Informational and descriptive) each serve different purposes and have different focuses. However, this site goes beyond just describing the differences; it also provides assistance to what type of written work might require an abstract: business letter, sales letter, grant writing. This is a one-stop resource website for writing an effective abstract. "
