Editors' reviewFinding information on the Web is only half the battle. Next you have to figure out how to store all those snippets of data. Copying them to Word or saving them in a Web archive only partially solves the problem. For Firefox users, ScrapBook provides an elegant way out. This extension installs a sidebar where you can drag and drop an entire Web page or any part of it, including images, links, and formatting. You can join snippets, organize them into folders, export them to other folders, and save the folder tree as HTML. Scrapbook automatically tags each snippet with the Web address from which it came. What's more, ScrapBook offers basic tools for annotating and editing captured pages. You can highlight or erase passages as well as add text comments. The interface could use a bit of polish, but overall this is a marvelous tool for Web research.
