The A-Z List Of Stuff That Will Help You Do This –

1. As a practical matter – I am a firm believer in the 3×5 lined card . . .

a.) 3×5 lined cards (about 200)

b.) lined & un-lined paper (not drawing paper)

c.) graph paper (2 gauges) & isometric paper (grid)

d.) tracing paper

e.) lots of pencils & hand-held double sizes sharpener

f.) one black pen that writes smooth

g.) two red pencils, one red ink pen

h.) yellow highlighters, one pink pencil, one yellow pencil (with yellow color “lead”)

i.) some dry erase markers (different colors, sizes & styles) + some wet-erase markers and grease pencils

j.) post-it notes, flags & 4×4 notes, in assorted colors

k.) file folders, manilla & colors (box of 100, not legal size)

l.) non-reproducing blue pencils – at least three ( because, just because people heist them.)

m.) color sticky circles, assorted colors

n.) color 3×5 cards – yellow, pink, green, blue

o.) 3-4 (or more) magnifying rules, glasses, magnifiers with differing magnifications

p.) rulers with clear markings for in/cm and grids, some see-thru / some metal with cork backing

q.) dictionary & thesaurus & encyclopedias (not new ones)

r.) stapler, staples (standard size)

s.) paper clips – assorted colors (no uncoated metal, they rust.)

t.) spiral – bound notebooks, lined paper pads (pull-out)

u.) color index tabs – clear with place for label to be used on folders (rather than as divider tabs)

v.) cable television, am radio, internet high speed, library card, habit of returning books on time.

w.) 1″ notebooks with identifiers on them

x.) glue sticks and stickers variety for identifiers on notebooks, folders, 3×5 cards, etc.

y.) clear and magic cellophane tape

z.) a willingness to write in margins & use a highlighter & dog-ear pages of books & magazines that belong to you & a computer printer attached to your computer with extra ink cartridges and clean paper / cardstock

so –> also a computer, printer and handy to have some digital cameras or access to them. If all else fails, use the computer time at the library and buy an electric or manual typewriter from a thrift store or yard sale. Whatever it takes to make it work.

+ 3 Rules –

1. Sign and date what you write, this time – every time, (even notes, shopping lists, doodles).

2. Place name of resource, book, website on all notes from it (somewhere with “cont.” & book title on each page taken from it.)

3. Do not expect dictionaries and encyclopedias to contain all words & references in them. They don’t. Find on internet search engines or call reference librarian at local, central or University libraries and ask. Spell word for the librarian clearly and politely, concisely explain where you found it and request that its meaning be looked up for you.

Please thank the librarian each time you use this service and be pleasant even if they are not. Also, there are foreign language translators online and dictionaries, search engines for specific relevance, like engineering terms, chemistry, etc. Use them when it is applicable, it is much easier.
