Weekly Tech Tip - Nov. 5, 2012

I just received my NETA newsletter in the mail and I cannot begin to tell you how many things can be learned by reading this newsletter. You do not have to be a member to view the newsletter as it is download-able from the NETA web page.

On page 12, you can see how enriching a google document can be. So, open a google document and start typing something. Now, with your document open, Go to the "Tools" menu and click the "Research" option. A pane should open on the right side of your google document allowing you to research right within your document. So, I typed "George Washington" in the search box and I did get back some images of George as well as some web sites to visit. With the images, if you drag them over to your document, the document will automatically site the source and place that infromation at the bottom of the page. If you want to use a link from a webpage, you can insert the link right into your google document. How cool!

So, refer to page 12 if you want more google tips and tricks. There are many other articles to read and browse, all for free. So, check it out!

Until next time,
