Step 3. Managing Information

Val now needs a method for organizing and managing the information she has found, so that she can easily refer to it and access it when necessary. Most books can be temporarily checked out from the library, and photocopies of a limited number of pages from reference books can be made. Electronic database articles can be emailed, printed, bookmarked, or saved to a storage device as needed. The bookmarking option is the only one that does not give you immediate access to the article. In order to access the bookmarked article you will need to be logged into Atlas first. Use the Permalink or Bookmark option near the bottom of the Tools menu if you plan to save the links to your articles, or share them with others when working on a group project via Facebook, Twitter or other service. Keep in mind that those you share the link with will have to login to Atlas to be able to access it.
