Bibliographic Management Systems
Handwritten notes are great (as long as they're complete!), but if you want something a little more searchable, re-usable, and less easily lost, here are some options. If these don't meet your needs, come talk to a librarian, or just use handwritten notes.
Whatever you do, make sure you keep GOOD notes. There's nothing more frustrating than writing up your paper and realizing you missed the volume number on a journal citation or the publish information on a book citation and having to backtrack. We've all done it, and it's not fun!
Available to Carleton people, this is a fully featured bibliographic management system. Import citations from catalogs and databases or type them in by hand, embed PDFs, search, sort, export as a bibliography in any one of hundreds of citation styles, and manage long papers with Cite While You Write.
EndNote's online version has the great advantage of being accessible from anywhere that has an internet connection and of allowing you to share folders with collaborators.
