Let’s Get Social: Social Bookmarking Anthony Molaro, MBA, MLIS DuPage Library System
Social Bookmarking: The next evolution Social Bookmarking + Web Annotation + Collaboration + Organizing = Working Smarter
Improve YOUR web How do you improve the use of the Web? By making it yours! And how do you make it yours? By writing all over it! Bookmarks Clipping Annotation (Sticky notes) Organizing it Sharing it
Diigo A personal research tool Bookmark Highlight the web Add sticky notes
Diigo A collaborative research platform Share your bookmarks Share your highlights Share your sticky notes Share With other librarians With students With friends Create a club
Differences Evernote and Diigo offer much of the same functionality. Evernote is a little more powerful, but has a downloadable desktop component to get the full functionality. They also have a limitation on the free version. Diigois entirely web-based and free!
My Library Diigo exists in the cloud. You can access it from ANYWHERE and on any compatible device. So a highlight or sticky note I make on my work computer is visible from my smart phone or home computer.
Other features The use of snapshot allows you to save, annotate, bookmark, highlight and archive a webpage as it currently is. It is saved as both an image and as a HTML page.
