  • PowerNotes (Temple Law Library subscription)
    PowerNotes allows you to extract text from documents or webpages and organize it, with notes, under your customized topics and subtopics.  PowerNotes automatically saves the citation information.

  • RefWorks
    RefWorks allows to you upload and sort documents, highlight and comment on text within the document, and add notes or tags to entire documents.  It works with many academic databases but not Lexis, Westlaw, or many webpages.

  • Mendeley
    Mendeley makes it easy to upload and sort documents, highlight and comment on text within the document, and add notes or tags to entire documents.  Like RefWorks, Mendeley cannot retrieve documents directly from Lexis or Westlaw.
