Using Google Notebook to do Case Research

When I'm doing case research for a brief or memo I usually compile a file full of citations and quotes and add a few notes that I can come back to later to arrange into a coherent form. Google has taken a few steps out of this process with Google Notebook.

Google Notebook adds a plug-in to your browser. The plug-in gives you a Open Notebook button in the lower right of your screen and a Note this (Google Notebook) menu item when you right click highlighted text. To add something to you notebook you highlight the relevant text, right click, and select Note this. A small Google Notebook window will open in the bottom right of your browser with you text in a new notebook entry. The title of the entry will be a link to the webpage you copied the text from. You can create new notebooks for each research topic.
