Evernote in the Archives

A 45 second update on how Evernote is helping me breeze through volumes of correspondence.

On my laptop, Evernote is running.  I create a folder for each box of materials I examine.  In that folder I create a folder for each archival folder within the box.  In that folder I create a note where I type, of course, my notes.

Simultaneously on my tablet, I use Evernote to take photo notes.  If I want a copy of a letter or a detail, I shot the photo and it goes to the corresponding folder for the box and archival folder.

Both laptop and tablet are syncing that material over the internet as I work.

Super fast, keeps documents organized, and perhaps best of all, no mass of scans and photocopies to deal with later.
