Delicious - Bookmarking Frenzy
This week's adventure brought me to Delicious.com, a social bookmarking tool similar to Diigo which our class has been using to collect useful sites, articles and links relevant to libraries and library and information studies. Where Diigo seems to be better geared towards research, Delicious is more fun (in my opinion). In fact, I've been having a great deal of fun bookmarking sites that are of interest to me. Sites belonging to my favorite authors (Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti), and those belonging to some of my favorite chefs (like G. Garvin for example). Of particular interest to me were the stacks. I like that these are theme based because it allows me to organize my bookmarks in a visual way that makes sense to me. I could definitely see myself using this bookmarking tool to store links to valuable sites that would help me as a School Library Media Specialist. Linking to other SLMS Websites or blogs for example. Linking to pathfinders for students. etc. The only thing I did not figure out is whether or not I can share my URL for my Delicious account like I can with Flickr for example. If I figure that out, I will add it in my next post. Thanks for checking in.
