Where Technology Meets Medical Librarianship

Social Bookmarking

So this week we worked with del.icio.us which I really enjoyed. I started off last year using Connotea and I think for bookmarking PubMed it’s wonderful but, it wasn’t as intuitive as I found del.icio.us. Over all I think social bookmarking is an extremely useful technology. Just think of how many researchers work in the field and internationally. To be able to have your “go to resources” wherever you are in the world is wonderful. I also think it’s useful if you teach outside of the library or if you present at a lot of conferences. I think uses for this technology is only limited by your imagination.
