White boards and brainstorming

Sometime you just need to scribble your thoughts down to get them organized. Newman Library has white boards available throughout the building; when you are working virtually with your group, shared white boards replicate that experience. Brainstorming applications allow you to arrange components of your project or research topic so you can divide up responsibilities or organize a paper.
