Thing #13 Delightful Diigo and Delicious
I was delighted with my experiences with Diigo and Delicious. I bookmarked favorite sites on Delicious including Flickr photostreams and School Library sites. I like that you can bookmark different kinds of sites. I was directed to Diigo when I clicked on Furl, and it was a happy accident. I like the features that allow you to highlight text and add sticky notes. I began researching articles for my professional reference list and was able to highlight important points that I want to go back and re-read. When I start putting together my reference list, I will be able to go back to my saved articles. This bookmark feature is going to make my research so much easier. I will not have to save files to my computer. I can access my bookmarks from any computer. I also will not have to remember links and webpages. Oh, my happy brain! Bookmarking sites will greatly aid my personal research as a student and consequently, my research as a librarian.
