I had a wonderful time exploring Del.icio.us as a research tool and especially liked looking through the SJLibraryLearning2 account created for this exercise. This is an amazing way to research a topic and see what websites others have already found useful. It is a great example of sharing through social networking and finding websites that you may have missed otherwise. The ability to keep the bookmarks you want in one place on the Internet is helpful when using more than one computer. Further, I like the aspect that other people can make comments on the articles found. This gives the reader more insight into the topics researched and provides more than one perspective.
I searched a few topics of interest such as second grade websites and quickly found why this tool is so helpful to educators and librarians alike. The sites bookmarked under this topic were relevant and could be narrowed down further such as Second Grade Reading, or Second Grade Math. I will definitely use this search tool in the future.
