Evernote offers a great way to clip information while you are in the midst of a research project. Microsoft OneNote can also help you to get organized. A new extension for Google Chrome users enables saving of elements of a Web page or the page itself directly to Google Drive. It’s called Save to Google Drive, naturally.
If you haven’t already committed to another research tool, and are heavy into the Google-verse, this seems like a great option. Since Drive synchronizes to your computer, it means you can easily open up the content when you’re offline. It has less of the organizational functionality of the research notebooks but that may be a boon for people who aren’t used to tagging or adding metadata to content.
