Title: Social Bookmarking Sites: A Review
Author(s): Barnes, Laura L.
Subject(s): Social bookmarking systems
Abstract: Social bookmarking tools allow users to store, manage, search, organize, and share their bookmarks online and access them from any-where. Although these tools have been around since the mid-90s, librarians have not generally embraced them as tools for building information resources. However, these are incredibly useful tools for collaboration and information sharing. Following is a brief description of some of the more popular social bookmarking sites and ways in which librarians are using them to help users navigate the Web.
