Back in January of this year, I provided shortcuts to the newest calendar templates for your OneNote 2007 notebooks. Since then, the Templates team at Office Online has been busy creating more free templates for you to download — including a full spectrum of customizable 2009 calendars and even a couple of early designs for next year.
Here are the direct links to these calendars:
As always, keep in mind that our free, ready-made templates can be easily customized to suit your personal needs and preferences. If a particular template doesn’t quite appeal to you, download it and use it as a starting point (it’s usually much easier to customize something than to start from scratch). You can then change the colors, fonts, layout, and any other formatting choices. When you’re done making changes, you can save your creation as a new custom template and apply it to new pages in your notebook.

Aside from single page OneNote templates, you can also create section templates (a template of a section containing one or more pages) and notebook templates (a template of a notebook containing one or more sections) in OneNote. To do this, click the Save As command when you're all done with your design work, and then choose the “OneNote Single File Package (*.onepkg)” option as the file type:
Be sure to select the appropriate Page Range before saving the package (choose Current Section to save your selection as a section template or choose Current Notebook to save your selection as a notebook template).
The OneNote package file format lets you easily install your custom template creations on multiple computers. You can also use this method to share your template creations and designs with your friends, family, co-workers, or classmates. Recipients of OneNote 2007 package files need only double-click such files to install a template onto their own computer.
If you’ve personally created some useful OneNote templates that you'd like to share with other readers, feel free to post a link to your download location as a comment!
