Outlast Document and Note location guide

As well as trying to survive the horrors that lurk within Mount Massive Asylum, Outlast also has two categories of collectibles to be found--document folders you can pick up and read, and notes you record by pointing your video camera at certain scenes. Collecting 15 of each will unlock the silver EDUCATED trophy, and by discovering all 31 of each you’ll receive the gold PULITZER award.

You have to collect all of these items during a single playthrough or the trophies won’t unlock, so make sure you save regularly--at least once per chapter--in case you miss any and have to go back. Otherwise you may pass a point of no return and have to restart the whole game to complete your collection.
