Electronically collecting and organizing sources for a master's project or thesis can be done in various ways.  The preferred way to save sources and citations is a personal choice.  Some options are listed below.

  • Folder feature from library database providers like EBSCO and ProQuest
    • Session folder
    • Personal account folder(s)
  • Personal email account folder(s)
  • Personal devices (flash drives, personal computer / laptop hard drives)

A combination of ways is an option. For example EBSCO or ProQuest session folders can be used in combination with folders made in personal email account or on personal devices.
