Check out E-notes




I\'ve been using e-notes for a month now and I love it. It\'s a great plug-in for your browser, especially if you\'re researching about a new subject or want to keep track of passages of text without adding a bookmark to your favorites folder. You just highlight the sentence or image you want to store, right-click and select Take e-note. The e-notes are stored in chronological order, but you can later edit them with Word. A datestamp and the URL is included with the e-note text. As a future enhancement, I would love it if you could store the e-notes in different e-notes files, so you could keep one e-note file for financial, one for radiation therapy, one for medical, one for airedale terriers or whatever other subject you\'re interested in.




Oh and did I mention it\'s free ?




To download or get more info go to the E-notes site.




You can also take a tour to see the great little plug-in in action.

Hi all,



A helpful hint (also posted in \'Business Issues\'):



The following site -which has been around since 1996- is considered by many to give the best explanation of how to find the right search engine.



Choose the Best Search for Your Information Needs at:



http://nuevaschool.org/~debbie/library/research/adviceengine.html



is a simple but elegant chart that shows all the major search engines and how they can help you.



And if that\'s not enough, Debbie has a link to NooldleQuest at www.noodletools.com/noodlequest, which is a \"search strategy wizard\" that asks you a few questions and recommends a search engine for you.



Bye for now,



Evert Deloof-Sys

Another valuable source (also posted in \'Business Issues\'):



XREFER

http://w1.xrefer.com/search.jsp



You\'ll never need a dictionary, glossary, encyclopedia, thesaurus, or any other kind of reference book again...



Sounds quite tempting, no?



Go to w1.xrefer.com/search.jsp



and check it out for yourself.



Calling itself a \"Web reference engine,\" xrefer features a database containing major reference works covering a wide range of subjects. All this information is cross-referenced to allow you to follow a trail of relevant information through several sources.



Whatever you need to know, just enter your search terms in the home page box and hit \'GO\'. To get the most out of xrefer, make sure that you read their search tips.



Quite helpful, to say the least.



Bye for now,



Evert Deloof-Sys
