Ryan Vasut on Using Evernote for Library Research

Ryan Vasut has a helpful post on how to organize your library research in Evernote. I’ve always struggled with a systematic way of organizing what I’m researching, what I need to check out at the library, and what books I need to look at. Too often I get scattered in various places and then try to bring it all together.

He has six notes labeled:

  1. Research log
  2. Abbreviations
  3. Sources to find
  4. Request(ed) books
  5. Books to pick up
  6. Things to read

This system may not work for everyone but it is a helpful way to get started and thinking about your own workflow.
