Del.icio.us Social Bookmarking Site Overhaul
The What's New page on the Delicious website describes the changes. There is more on the Delicious blog.
Many libraries have been turning to web 2.0 tools such as Delicious, as I noted in earlier Library Boy posts such as:
- MIT Updates Virtual Reference Pages Using Social Bookmarking (July 9, 2007): "The library at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is using the social bookmarking site del.icio.us to keep its virtual reference web pages up to date (...) 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."
- Use of Social Tagging in Libraries Spreading (September 17, 2007): "The article Tags Help Make Libraries Del.icio.us in the online version of Library Journal describes how more and more libraries are turning to social bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us to organize information about recommended resources and replace the traditional subject guide."
