Using PowerNotes

When you have found content you want to save from any website or a pdf you’ve accessed from a UT Libraries database, you can do the following: 

  • Highlight it: The text you highlight will be saved.

  • Choose a topic: After text is highlighted, the topics menu will appear – the default topics are “Topic 1” and “Topic 2,” and you can edit and add topics easily.

  • Add your own notes: Once you've selected a topic, the notes box will appear so you can take notes if you want.

  • Confirm citation info: Click on the gray citation icon to review and edit citation info.
