laɪbnɪts provides a way for you to manage you research and share it if you choose to. We call it a Personal Search Engine, allowing you to access and make better use of the parts of the web you've already visited.
How many times have you said to a colleague or friend “I read a great article this morning. I'll send it to you.”? Only for the article to be impossible to re-find. Plus, let's be frank, going through your browser's history is just too painful. No more!
Why not just bookmark everything? Well, there's a reason all the bookmarking sites went out of business: it's impossible to know that the article you've just read or quickly scanned will be critically important in three months, one week or 4 days in the future! Bookmarking doesn't work, because you never know what you really need to bookmark. laɪbnɪts can help you see into the future! Well maybe not. But it does mean you can go back and easily find the information you missed or were unaware of its importance.
Ever done a whole load of research only to find out a colleague did exactly the same research a few days earlier? laɪbnɪts will compare any new documents _you_ look at to the search history of all other users you give access to. If it finds any similarities between your document and the existing ones, it will let both you and your colleague know. Then you can both benefit from each other's research.
laɪbnɪts, at its heart, is a research tool and everyone is a researcher in some capacity. Ever planned for a holiday? Tried to decide which new phone to buy? Needed to work on an assignment due at the end of the week?
In short, we all research. We just don't necessarily call it research. What's more, you may have already looked at the article which contains that vital piece of information … you just didn't know it at the time. This is where laɪbnɪts can help.
Step 1 Sign up to laɪbnɪts by clicking here. At the end of the sign up, you'll be given a secure key.
Step 2 Download the plugin for you particular browser. This is needed so you don't have to bookmark everything.
