The MU Libraries and Campus Writing Program, with support from the Provost’s Office, are excited to announce that the campus now has access to PowerNotes. This new tool is both a browser extension and outline creator that conceptually bridges the gap between research and writing.
The PowerNotes extension allows you to automatically save text, take notes, and capture citations and URLs all in one click, without leaving the article, PDF, e-book or website you’re currently reading. Highlighted quotes and accompanying details are saved as tiles or notecards in an outline that evolves as you research, which can be shared with collaborators and exported into Word, or just as the bibliography.
If you’re interested in learning more, a workshop on PowerNotes is available through the Libraries YouTube channel and provides an in-depth demonstration in addition to discussing instruction applications. You can also check out the PowerNotes website for short video tutorials on specific features and educator resources.
Contact Kimberly Moeller for any questions, or if your department would like to schedule a presentation!
Funding for PowerNotes is provided by the University of Missouri Libraries, the Campus Writing Program, and the Provost Strategic Initiative Fund.
