Tech Tip - Collect bookmarks & citations automatically

Check out ​Citable, a helpful ​Google ​Chrome extension that simplifies how you ​research, ​collect and save information.

Citable automatically collects everything you highlight and saves it into a Google Sheets spreadsheet, along with any additional reference info (like author, URL, and article title) you’d need for a web citation.

Not only is it helpful for saving bookmarks, but you can also export the information to create a bibliography.  ​

Here is a short video tutorial on how to use Citable​.
