Suggestion for a way of organising meta-level information about notes

Recommended Posts

I recently started to create a mind map for each of my project notebooks in Evernote in order to organise the 'meta-level' information ("data about data") and relational contained in the notes.  I would like to suggest that the ability to create simple mindmaps in evernote is built it. Even better if each node on the mind map refers to a note. 

Secondly what other ways are they apart from tags / notebooks of structuring the 'meta-level' information about things stored in evernote.

For something to tinker with, there's Mohiomap.

 

Within Evernote, you can use the Shortcuts list to arrange your project notebooks etc into a list order of your choosing. 

 

The Reminders list is a decent one for all notes with a reminder. They get sorted by notebook and you can order your lists arbitrarily.

 

You can create table of content notes, containing links to the individual notes within a notebook... you may take those individual links and create your own hierarchy/ outline, using bullets and indentations within a note.

 

No big revelations there. For many, a decent nested tagging system might do the trick. Here's a post from Michael Hyatt that might be of interest.

Another option you might want to consider is an online application that intergates with Evernote called LiveBinders.

This is a link to their site homepage:

This is a link to their page providing three plan options from Free to Pro. The free option allows up to 10 Binders:

And this is a link to a blog I found where the owner has both an excellent description and a How To video:
