To be productive, you need to be able to keep track of, and easily find all those wonderful resources that you will accumulate throughout your degree. Luckily, there are some great tools to help organise your work.

While there are a multitude of tools that allow you to pull together and publish information from various source, we’re going to suggest you have a go with Diigo – a bookmarking tool that allows you to tag and comment on individual resources and share with ‘groups’ who are interested in the same area.

diigoDiigo is cloud-based, which is particularly handy for those times when you’re not on your ‘main’ computer and you want to access sites that you use all the time. It’s also very user-friendly and easy to set up. It works by saving your links in a ‘library’ associated with your account, so you can easily retrieve them.

To complete this challenge, choose your tool of choice, access the ‘getting started’ guides, and add your first resources to your library. As you get started, make sure you explore how to use tags (to retrieve your resources) and browser extensions (to really speed up the process of adding resources to your library).
