Do you own your own library. I do. It's online at

Diigo is a place where you store all the articles that you have read online.  Why would you want to do this?  Well lets say you have a class that you need to write a paper on.  You have tagged all the articles with words that correspond with the content like "Reading".  You click on the "Reading" tag and you have all your resources for your paper.  But that's not all!  You can know follow people that have tagged articles on "Reading" and you now have more resources than you can every use.  The power of collaboration at it's best.  Take the time out of research,  Find your research with out digging into stacks of paper  and start making your professional life a little less crazy.  Maybe even un-clutter your house a little.
