I’ve been using Evernote for a while now and so I am convinced that it is a terrific tool for library staff and students (in particular.) Anyone who wants to sync documents, websites and notes between their devices will find Evernote just so useful and user friendly. It’s kind of like cataloguing your entire computer’s contents and the ability to access them from all of your devices.

What does it do? The Evernote website explains more:

1. Capture everything.

Chances are, if you can see it or think of it, Evernote can help you remember it. Type a text note. Clip a web page. Snap a photo. Grab a screenshot. Evernote will keep it all safe.

2. Organise it (or let us do it).

Everything you capture is automatically processed, indexed, and made searchable. If you like, you can add tags or organize notes into different notebooks.

3. Find anything fast.

Search for notes by keywords, titles, and tags. Evernote magically makes printed and handwritten text inside your images searchable, too.

Infinitely useful.

Put your thoughts, ideas, inspiration, and things to remember all in one place. Use Evernote for work, for play, and for everything that’s noteworthy.

Oh yes, and it’s free! There is a premium account, but you’d have to do an awful lot of web clipping and note saving to need it.

  1. Hello I work for Evernote and came across your post. Thanks so much for sharing your experience with Evernote on your blog with your readers. We’re very happy to hear that people such as yourself are finding use for Evernote in an education setting. If you have any questions let me know.

  2. Hi Judith, I agree Evernote is now my all time favourite it sits open on my desktop every day and I use it all the time. It is quick versatile and so easy to use. It is one of the tools I will be recommending to our staff when I present my Prezi on my to 10 web tools

  3. Hi Judith, I have always used OneNote in the Microsoft Office package. It is great to store all of the information I receive by email (anything up to 50 per day) from all of my lab tech colleagues, copied and pasted into A-Z pages in the notebook I created. The problem is that it is saved onto our school network so I can’t access it when the network is down or from home. I have started using Evernote so I can access it anywhere and now that I have an android phone it is really handy for ‘on the go’ situations too.
