Using bookmarks or favorites to create your own bibliography.

  1. Open your bookmarks editing window. (Your program may call them "favorites" or "a hotlist" instead of bookmarks; but all browsers have something similar.)

  2. Save your current bookmarks file to your hard drive (look for "Save..." in the File menu), name it something, and REMEMBER what you called it & where it is being stored. [You can only put these items back later if you save them now.]

  3. Did you save? Okay, then DELETE all your bookmarks now.

  4. Go to your main browser page and ADD BOOKMARKS.

  5. Go to the bookmarks editing window and edit each bookmark — change the title and/or add comments. [Here is where one can also IMPORT bookmarks if you have gotten or made such a file.]

    -- Repeat steps 4 & 5 as desired. —

  6. When you have added all the bookmarks you want on this list, go to or open your bookmarks editing window again.

  7. Save your current bookmarks file to your hard drive (using "Save..." in the File menu), name it something topical which ends with ".htm", and WRITE DOWN what you called it & where it is being stored.

  8. Go to your main browser page and OPEN this new HTML document. (From the "File" menu choose "Open document" or "Open file", in the resulting window, find your topical.htm file and select it.)

  9. Voila!! Your very own annotated bibliography!

Get up,
