Note-taking (or note taking) is recording information taken from another source. By taking notes, the writer records the information, so they don't have to recall everything.[1]

Notes are usually taken from a transient (temporary) source, such as an oral discussion at a meeting, or a lecture or even a passing thought. in these cases the notes may be the only record of the event. Notes of a meeting are usually called minutes.

Note taking is a form of self discipline.
