*Create charts (graphic organizers) that allow you to quickly find the information you want.
*Use Web tools, such as Evernote, that allow you to copy and paste information from websites, create diagrams, record information, and add comments and tags to information that you find. You can send the material to your computer or smartphone and access it.
*Obtain information ahead of time (such as a list of conference participants), so that you can review names and affiliations before the event starts.
