  2. 3. <ul><li>Bookmarking or “tagging” allows educators and pupils alike to tag articles of interest found on the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Said tagging allows users to access their tagged items from any computer with an Internet connection. </li></ul><ul><li>Social Bookmarking websites allow users to browse the tagged items of other users </li></ul><ul><li>This method of browsing other users tagged items alleviates the need to sift through pages upon pages of search results to find the desired subject matter. </li></ul>Next Home Riddel, R (2006, 12 29).

  3. 4. Prev. Next Home <ul><li>Many articles on the Internet have icons that allow quick tagging of items. </li></ul><ul><li>There are various websites dedicated to the tagging over certain items. An example would be Bibsonomy , which focuses on the tagging of literary resources </li></ul><ul><li>An example of a Social Bookmarking website, and perhaps the most popular, would be del.icio.us . </li></ul><ul><li>Social Bookmarking could allow an educator to post relevant websites for their students. </li></ul>Riddel, R (2006, 12 29).

  4. 5. Home Prev. <ul><li>I believe that social bookmarking has many potential advantages to it’s core. </li></ul><ul><li>Students would be allowed to access their tagged items from any computer; this is particularly useful to college students that make use of campus computers. </li></ul><ul><li>Non-academic uses for Social Bookmarking are abundant as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Users are able to find others that share the same interests, whatever they may be, and browse their tagged items. </li></ul>Riddel, R (2006, 12 29).

  5. 6. Next Home <ul><li>Typical library databases are sometimes difficult to navigate and thus make use of. </li></ul><ul><li>Social Bookmarking websites, such as del.icio.us, make browsing for resources much more user friendly. </li></ul><ul><li>Social Bookmarking websites allow less tech-friendly librarians to add content to databases. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators are able to tag groups of items together under one tag, making it easier for students to locate the tagged items and make use of them. </li></ul>Rethlefsen, M (2007 September).

  6. 7. Next Home Prev. <ul><li>An item with a large amount of tags indicates that the item is popular – which sometimes indicates that the information therein is of high quality. </li></ul><ul><li>LibraryThing is a bookmarking website designed to post books and allow users to tag them. </li></ul><ul><li>New books added to a library appear as new material on LibaryThing accounts for libraries that use it. </li></ul><ul><li>Social Bookmarking improves access to library materials by making it easier to navigate and tag items of interest. </li></ul>Rethlefsen, M (2007 September).

  7. 8.

  8. 9. Next Home <ul><li>Social Bookmarking allows librarians and educators can tailor bookmarks to meet a classroom’s curricular and research needs. (DesRoches 2007) </li></ul><ul><li>When students tag items of interest and share them with their peers, the list of resources expands. </li></ul><ul><li>When searching for items of interest, users using Social Bookmarking websites may stumble across other items of interest. </li></ul>DesRoches, D (2007 January).

  9. 10. Next Home Prev. <ul><li>Libraries can create links on their websites to Social Bookmarking websites with groups of items under the same tag. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are more diligent about using and tagging resources because they know that their peers will be using them. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators can group tags together so that students can find groups of tagged items by searching by a particular keyword. </li></ul>DesRoches, D (2007 January).

  10. 11. Home Prev. <ul><li>Students are encouraged to tag quality items since their peers will be using the same items. </li></ul><ul><li>I believe the potential for school libraries to expand with Social Bookmarking technology is great. </li></ul><ul><li>As more users use these websites, the list of resources expands. </li></ul><ul><li>Students that learn to make use of this technology from an earlier age will add a substantial amount of material to these websites throughout their academic careers. </li></ul>DesRoches, D (2007 January).

  11. 12. Home <ul><li>Social Bookmarking is a useful item that almost any computer user can make use of. </li></ul><ul><li>Students that make use of different computers but wish to take their bookmarked items with them would find these items of particular interest. </li></ul><ul><li>These resources allow educators and students to save relevant data for others to view and use. </li></ul><ul><li>In addition to it’s academic value, social bookmarking can be used to find items of interest, regardless of what that interest may be. </li></ul><ul><li>When this technology is employed, the user does not have to spend any substantial amount of time filtering search results from engines such as Google. </li></ul>
