Saving   and Organizing Information.


On Monday, Gina was asked by her   boss to research a work-related topic and present her findings to the team   the next day. Looking ahead at her schedule, she can only budget about two   hours to research the topic and plans to complete this before lunch. During   that time she is able to find several websites and articles related to the   topic that she plans to incorporate into her presentation. Pleased with the   results, she closes her browser, shuts down her computer, and leaves for   lunch. When she returns from lunch she opens her computer to begin to plan   her presentation. But wait—where are the websites and articles? Gina realizes   that she neglected to save and organize her research and cannot remember   where she found all of her resources. With no time to redo her research, she   must go tell her boss that she cannot complete the presentation on time.
