Does anyone have any good suggestions for organizing research efforts? I am in the middle of several high caliber projects at the moment, and am drowning in papers. I have no assistant, and need some good suggestions for organizing what I already have. I am thinking index cards for now. At least I can carry those around without breaking my back, unlike carrying around much of the research I have amassed.

Index cards are good. Recently I've been typing notes into word documents and then using the edit / find function off the tool bar to search for keywords.

Unfortunately, I think the key issue is trying to do multiple projects at once! It's taken me almost 20 years, but I'm beginning to wonder if that's even possible. :-)
I've found that it is easier to type my research notes in Word and then arrange them later on to form complete thoughts.
