Are you the sort of researcher who writes notes in the margins of their books or uses highlighter pens to emphasise important points in the text? Did you know that you can do the same kind of marking and notetaking on website pages that you can then store to refer to again in the future? I’ve just discovered how and it’s amazing.
By registering and installing the Diigo toolbar from the Diigo website http://www.diigo.com/ you can bookmark useful websites for different areas of study and add notes to the text on the pages. There is a very good 4 minute video introduction to the possibilities: Starting Diigo by DiigoBuzz on Youtube
I had a go at bookmarking and highlighting a page about Gothic Literature as shown in the image above. I made notes as if I was planning an essay entitled “What is Gothic Literature?”
