Thing #14 -- Week 9

Delicious. I would associate this word more with food than computers. However, after watching the short video and going through the various exercises, I think I'll find this very useful. Maybe the most useful thing we've learned in this journey so far. I'm one of those people who works on at least three computers and have bookmarks on all of them. Of course, whichever computer I'm on doesn't always have the bookmark I'm looking for. This would certainly solve that problem. I've signed up for an account and will start moving my bookmarks over as I have time.

I checked out the Holdrege Public Library's tagroll and they have certainly done a lot with Delicious. I'm not sure I'll go as far as doing something like that with our lists of sites on our web page, but then again, never say never.

If I were to tag the NebraskAccess site I would use nebraskaccess & databases, as several others did. Then I would add magazines, biography and genealogy.

For me, the best part of Delicious is the ability to share bookmarks from any computer with Internet access.

  1. Did you know that you can import/upload your bookmarks from your different browsers? Of course getting them uploaded is the easy part. You will still have to go back and add tags. You can find the upload option under: Settings - Bookmarks - Import/Upload.
