These are some of the must have tools for information wrangling.

SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR RESEARCH

We have moved to accessing NoodleTools through our Google apps account. Once you log into your school gmail, click on the waffle icon (same one that takes you to your calendar) and scroll way down to find the NoodleTools App.

Benefits:

  • No more re-authentication needed.
  • No more id/passwords are needed (unless you want to keep old content in your previous NoodleTools account). 

NOODLETOOLS UPGRADE Early 2016

A moderate upgrade of the NoodleTools platform is coming in the Fall of 2016.  You can check out the August 27th 2015 webinar recording below explaining the new features.

Because you are most likely using NoodleTools, you won't also need to use Diigo for your papers. However, you could start using Diigo to keep track of personal bookmarks. The advantage is that you can add literally thousands of links and tag them for easy location later. Over time this will allow you to uncover the broad patterns of interests that you pursue.
