Thoughts on saving space and energy
When making notes and references to information
from a book, I find it very handy
to photocopy the title page of the book.
Any notes are then written on the back of
this photocopy, thereby giving me quick
and accurate access to the source.
Naturally this can only be of use at locations that have the facilities to make photocopies.
Another good use of a photocopy of the title page is when we wish to order/purchase a particular book. It saves confusion and possible misspelled title, author, or publisher. Multiple photocopies from this book can also be paper clipped together to help later on.
I like to use photocopies in other instances also. One of these is when copying obituaries, or other articles from a newspaper, I photocopy the 'Masthead' with the date included. I find this great for scanning onto the same page as the article. To me it seems to add a great touch, especially for 'Show & Tell'.
Without a scanner, this can be done as a 'paste up'. Frequently I do this and then scan the 'pasted up' page.
