    REVIEW

    One of the great things about CoKnown is that it's Very quick to Review where your at.
    You can also "Share" your research with your Professor. Just click the Share button and email them your Project.
       While just about nobody is willing to look through your stack of notes, photocopies, saved pages and Notecards, CoKnown makes review quick and easy.
    If you add your Professor as a CoSearcher they will be able to add Notes directly within your Projects Custom Lists.

    For Disertations this can be a HUGE TIME SAVER.
       You can get feedback about where the holes are in your research BEFORE you write up chapters and then find out they want more of "_______".
