I’m curious to understand what are the pros and cons of having a single library vs. multiple libraries.
I started out with a library for general filing, one for long-term reference, once for emails etc. Gradually though I moved to a single fixed library as I found it more useful to be able to search in one place and turn up hits that I didn’t expect. I generally use folders and tags to sort within that single library and will probably stick with that model as it seems to swallow up everything I need.
I suppose the compromise would be to have an inbox for grabbing thing quickly and then another library for longer term storage. Any further thoughts?
