PhD students: Tools for note taking

Making and organising notes is a fundamental activity for researchers. A variety of tools now exist that support all types of note taking, whether you are working in a lab, archive or out in the field. Knowing which ones are right for you can be a challenge however. This session aims to make that choice easier. We introduce researchers to the range of tools out there, and show examples of how others are using them. Participants will also have the opportunity to practice using tools that interest them. Finally, we will look at best practice for storing and backing up research notes.
