Information capture, storage and management
These tools provide a variety of different ways for you to capture, store and manage the information you harvest while researching on the web. Sometimes we just want to bookmark a site so we can revisit it and at other times we want to capture the information as we find it for a specific task. Whatever we do it is important that we organise and manage this information so we can access it when we need it. The following tools can help you do that.
