Note-taking in a nutshell
* Keep your notes on a given point to around one line of notes.
* Make sure to jot down the page number and first word in the source's citation for each note that you take.
* Have an idea for where your notes are going in your project.
(If you don't know where you will use the notes in your project, why are you spending time writing them down?)
