Highlighting a handy feature

Did you know that the USM Libraries subscribe to the ebrary Academic Complete Ebooks Collection?  With a free ebrary account you can highlight and annotate the books.

Did you also know that Adobe® Reader® X allows you to highlight and comment on PDF documents? When you are in a PDF document, you’ll see the word “Comment” to the right on the main toolbar.  Clicking on that word gives you the options to highlight text or to leave sticky notes.

Try these features the next time you use an ebrary book or a PDF document.   Tell you students about online notetaking.  The libraries enjoy sharing tips for using information more fully.
