I must save this!
These days, there are better ways to go about it. If I find an interesting article online, I look for "ShareThis," "Bookmark," or an email button so I can send the article to myself. The ShareThis button - used on this site and many others - has a ton of options, so you can email or post to your Facebook, Twitter, delicious or just about any other account you can think of. In the catalog, it's called "Bookmark" and has similar options. Most of the Library's Research databases offer an email function, and some also offer the option to sign in so you can save articles or searches and go back to them later. Now instead of stacks of papers taking up physical space, I have email messages taking up memory space. They're still not organized in a manageable way! But now I have some hope of finding them again since computer space is so much easier to search than digging through my desk. Oh, I still have papers, and my desk will never look like that, but things are looking up!
How do you keep track of articles and websites you want to remember?
