Inserting information & links into your notebooks

Microsoft OneNote is a program like no other. It can house so much information. There is almost no limit to what you can store in your OneNote notebooks. Just as your paper notebook can get full with a lot of extra pages clipped in or sticky notes sticking out of it, so too can your OneNote notebook. A big difference with OneNote, though, is it will not look messy.
