Storing and sharing information and documents on the internet

  • Storing documents or information in 'the cloud’ means they are stored on the internet and you can access them via websites and desktop or mobile applications. Using the cloud can be useful for backing up your work and sharing documents with other people.
  • Evernote allows you to store notes, web clippings, pictures and voice recordings in online notebooks you can access from any computer or device. Evernote also has a range of free smartphone apps and a downloadable desktop version. Learn more on the Evernote website.
  • Dropbox is a free online filestore that allows you to upload and access documents. You can also share files with other people. The University has a FileDrop service to make it easy for you to move files, including large files up to 2.0 GB, in and out of the University.

Sharing links and references with social bookmarking

Social bookmarking sites enable you to save and share your links and references. They help you to collect, organise, share and make notes on links from any computer where you can access the internet. Popular sites include CiteULike and Delicious.
