- The DRRlibrary site is a shared bookmarking site on DRR. The idea is that you can 1) keep track of your own bookmarks (and have access to them anywhere over the internet) and 2) share bookmarks with others. Of course if we all start sharing our favorite bookmarks, we should also get a pretty good set of professional resources to search on.
- If you want to try it out ...
- You can go to DRRlibrary and search on items that have already been 'tagged'.
- You can also click on the register link at the top to make an account and start adding your own bookmarks.
- Once you have an account, you can bookmark a particular web page or document by going to DRRlibrary and clicking on 'add a bookmark' once you are logged in. Then you just fill in the web address, tags and other information.
A little further ...
- Tagging from your browser toolbar -- If you want a faster way to bookmark pages, you can also download a 'bookmarklet' that you can use to add a button to your browser.
Drag one of the following bookmarklets to your browser's bookmarks and click it whenever you want to add the page you are on to DRRlibrary:
In Internet Explorer right click the bookmarklet link and click 'Add to Favorites ...'. Save it in the Links folder and make sure that the Links toolbar is turned on in the View-->Toolbars menu.
In Firefox, you can drag the the bookmarklet up to your Bookmarks toolber (remeber to make sure the toolbar is turned on in the View-->Toolbars menu.
- Importing from del.icio.us or from your browser's bookmarks -- Importing is fairly straightforward. Once you register on the DRRlibrary site, if you login and click on 'add a bookmark', there is a section at the bottom of the page on importing from del.icio.us or from a browser bookmark file. Follow the instructions to download your bookmarks from del.cio.us, save them to a file on your computer, and then import them into the DRRlibrary site.
