How to Use Deadline Lifelines Bookmarks

Using delicious.com, a social bookmarking site, the Research Center has gathered 500+ websites for your research needs.  To get the most out of this service, you’ll need to know how to use it.

Under the Journalist’s ToolBox on the Research Center’s homepage there is a link for Deadline Lifelines Bookmarks, this link takes you to the delicious.com site.

By using tags, which are one word descriptions of the site, it helps organize the hundreds of websites. delicious.com has a simple user-interface, which allows you to type in your keyword to yield results. Each tag is assigned to a web link. For example, if you are looking for Health information, use the Health and Medicine tag, it will display all of the web links that have been tagged Health and Medicine.

For deeper searching, make use of the related tags feature that appears after you select your main tag. For example, if you are searching through the Health and Medicine tagged links, look at the related links, you will be able to click on the related tags to narrow your search.

Happy Searching!
