A post to the Society of American Archivists listserv mentioned this piece of software: ILINX Capture Mobile “allows you to capture an image of anything, attach keywords to it, so you and easily find it later, and then emails a PDF of the image back to you.”  Seems like a tool with  potential for those who wish to take pictures of rare or archival material in Rare Books and Special Collections or University Archives and keep track of citations, box locations, etc.  While using a cell phone or digital camera to capture images of material in our reading room is allowed in RBSC and UA (within the constraints of copyright law and fair dealing) we always caution researchers to take careful note of what they are photographing so that they can cite it properly later.

Do you have an app, a tool or other method of keeping track of what you’ve seen in the reading room? Tell us about it in the comments and share with others!
