The U 0f M Assignment Calculator is much more detailed than the Research Project Calculator, however, the RPC lets you sign up and get email reminders whereas the U of M AC is limited to faculty, staff and students of the U of M. You could save your research guide or print it out. I like to print things out so I can write all over them and take notes. And cross things off as I get done with them. Hehee.
Extra handy is the supporting materials page with TONS of helpful printouts. Check out under #4 - you can print out a "Copyright and Fair Use Tip Sheet" (there's an appropriate library handout!) and a "Permission to Use Copyrighted Resource Tip Sheet." There will certainly be helpful pages for longterm planning on projects at a library.
These links relate more to a previous Thing but thought I'd share these free and fabulous resources for organization and planning:
