Formatting a structure note
If you've seen any of my posts from the past month, you know I recently started a new MS program. I always study with both a notebook and The Archive open.
I've set it up that my
#GIS OR #cartography are saved searches. This typically works.
Today I realized that I need my first significant structure note. I have sufficient notes and note-strings that I need a way to see how some of the pieces fit together. But I have no idea what this note should look like.
- Does a structure note still get a time-based ID? (Most of my notes are
YYYYMMDD Name of Idea)
- How do I set it up so that my note ends up near the top of the list for my
#cartographysaved search, above?
- Is it advisable to link the structure note to glossary entries, which were originally built so that I could build my vocabulary for the field, or would that make the note too bloated to be useful?1
i.e., the glossary is useful for study, but due to spaced repetition, I'm gaining fluency with a lot of concepts and don't reference some entries as much unless reviewing etymologies of the terms. I still intend for the glossary to be a key part of my ZK, especially since it crosses boundaries of the several academic fields I am a part of. ↩︎
