TakeNote was founded as the supplemental lecture note service at Cornell University in 1985. Since then our organization has steadily improved and grown. The Chronicle of Higher Education called TakeNote one of the best notetaking services in the country (CHE, April 1992). TakeNote contracts notetakers, often TA's and Graduate students, to take notes in some of Cornell's most popular classes and makes them available to further students' understanding of the material covered in lecture.
