An Accurate Portrait of Your Lives?
Creating an Electronic Notebook
Zotero: It works with ANTPAC, Google Book Search, Amazon.com, newspapers like The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, YouTube videos, and academic publications like scholarly journal articles, conference proceedings, etc. You can also export bibliographies and notes for several automatically generated formats (including MLA and CMS) into Word documents. It also takes screen shots of your research sources.
Social Bookmarking Sites like Diigo and del.icio.us
News Readers like Netvibes or iGoogle and RSS feeds through sites like Technorati (but protect your privacy by using pseudonyms or a Google anonymizer)
Web lookup tools like Wordweb
The library also offers workshops on RefWorks
