In my textbook, it says to find the conc. of an unknown alkali then you put the alkali into a beaker and the known conc. acid into the burette. But online it said that to find the conc. of an acid then you still put the alkali in the beaker. is this right or wrong

it can be either... the point of a titration is to find the concentration of an unknown solution, be it an alkali or acid. If you want to find the conc of an acid you must neutralise it with an alkali and vice versa, otherwise adding an acid to an acid won't do much in terms of reaction.
