Bits and Pieces of Gold - Now Available From Clipmark!
Clipmark is a really great extension that lets you grab bits of web pages that you are interested in and save them off to a centrally located and available platform. You can mark your "clipmarks" as private or public. You can also tag the information with key words that you can use to search your clipmarks for. For example, I'm interested in lyme disease but I don't want to save every page that mentions the word "lyme" but I can clip the paragraph that I am interested in and then quickly save it. At a later date, if I remember reading something and clipping it I can look it up by "lyme, CDC" or whatever topic I may be looking for. This is hard to explain but if you are like me and constantly read bits and pieces of things that you would like to keep on file somewhere but it doesn't make sense to save the whole page, then this might be a good tool for you.
You do have to sign up for a free account and give them a working email address. I've been using it now for about a month and it seems to work very well. It puts 4 buttons on your browser navigation bar to clip, save clip, print preview, and print so that is a little cumbersome. I am going to put a bug in the ear of the developer on this subject but it is worth it because of the capabilities.
You can get the extension at the link below.
The installation of the extension will lead you to this page to sign up for your free account.
Go to the clipmark site and check out some of the public clipmarks and it will give you a better idea about the service than I can probably describe to you in this forum. I'll just tell you I like, think it is valuable, and it works with our configuration (like everything I recommend on this page).
