MIT Updates Virtual Reference Pages Using Social Bookmarking
On del.icio.us, users can create an account to save bookmarks and assign them subject tags that can be shared with others.
What is interesting is that MIT uses an RSS feed to send the links from the del.icio.us account to its virtual reference collection, making maintenance a much easier task.
This is the first I have heard of using del.icio.us as a way of enhancing a reference service.
At the Supreme Court of Canada Library, we have hundreds of legal research links, a list that can become quite difficult to manage and we have been thinking of new ways to provide access to this kind of material. This looks promising.
