New Tool for Better Online Research
As any good researcher knows, there’s no magic wand for getting good research done. But there are some pretty helpful tools out there, and one of the most promising that we think you should know about is PowerNotes, a new desktop application that can make online research much more organized and efficient. PowerNotes is presently free for all Cornellians with a “cornell.edu” email address.
With PowerNotes, you can:
- Efficiently gather information from online sources, with the ability to highlight, annotate and save content into custom research topics with a single click;
- Organize and map out your research as you go, building, filling out, and adjusting your research paper outline as you gather more information and restructure your arguments by dragging and dropping;
- Reliably save links to all your sources, so you never lose track of where you found the information and data you cite in your research.
