1. Note the filename and download location for your article image. Better yet, sort your article or page images into folders, meaningfully named to accompany your research project.
2. Note any and all data needed for the citation and bibliography process at the time of download. It is much easier to find the pertinent details when you are saving articles initially than it is to retrace your steps after the fact.
3. Pair your article or page image filename with your citation data so that you remember which article goes with which set of data. Many newspaper articles lack meaningful titles and authors.
4. Find a research organization method that works for you. File managers like Zotero, cloud services like Google Drive or Evernote, and Word documents are all valid options. You are most likely to use (and use well) the system that best resonates with you.
Save the following pieces of information on historic newspaper articles as part of your research process. Does every citation format need all these pieces? No, but collecting them all is good research practice and will enable you to retrace your steps, if necessary.
