Collect and connect ideas from the web and books with Findings.com
As part of our effort to bridge the physical and digital print worlds, we are proud to announce our newest and most-requested feature…manual clip entry for printed books!
When you go to your Findings page (click the “Findings” link at the top when you’re logged in), you’ll now see a button next to your name labelled “Enter a clip”. Clicking this will walk you through the two-step process:
1. In order to save you time and effort of typing all the book information (and to increase accuracy), we simply ask for the 10- or 13- digit ISBN number for your book. This number can be found on the back of the book’s title page, or on the back cover.
2. After entering the ISBN, we will retrieve information about your book and present you with a form to enter the quote as well as a note and page number. When you submit a clip, the clip entry field will reset and you can go ahead and keep typing to more. As with all findings, you can choose to make your manually-entered quotes private. Just check the “Make Private” box.
As part of this change we now display the medium from which a quote is saved…web, paper, ebook, and soon…applications using our API. Stay tuned!
