What is PowerNotes?

PowerNotes is a tool to help you save, annotate, and organize sources you access from databases and the Web. PowerNotes helps you take notes on and keep track of your online sources, create a research outline, avoid accidental plagiarism, and more.

Students can:

  • Capture online source material: PowerNotes allows students to highlight and file away information to one of their custom topics in a project.
  • Annotate online sources while they read: To add a thought to any highlighted text, students simply type a note, and they don't need to copy/paste in the URL of the site—PowerNotes does this automatically.
  • Organize sources: Highlights, notes, and URLs are saved to custom topics in a project—an organized and accessible way to preserve what students have collected.
  • Download outline and notes: When it’s time to write the paper, students can download their project to Word.
