Featured Online Resource, Diigo

This week’s Featured Online Resource is Diigo. Diigo allows you to bookmark web pages, similar to Delicious but it has the added feature that you can highlight important passages of the web page. You can also place sticky notes on the web page to notate certain parts as well. The great feature about Diigo is that when you return to the web page, your highlighting and sticky notes will still be there.

You can also share you bookmarks that you have made with others or post your new bookmarks to Twitter, a blog, or Facebook. Diigo also allows offers the option to create groups. The group can then build a knowledge base of bookmarks on a particular topic. This is a great feature for a group working on a project.

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
