I am a user of both delicious for all my personal bookmarks mainly, and diigo as a member of a few groups. As a TL I get lots of great PD from my diigo membership. I’ve stopped really exploring the possibilities of delicious as I believe it will cease to exist in November. Our small team of librarians form a small private diigo group and share key “stuff” we come across. It acts as a bit of a filter to all information forever feeding in. We are also exploring the possibilities in using diigo for resourcing inquiries and sharing this collaborative refinement of information across the year level. The only obstacle is sometimes a reluctance for one more technology but when they realise what it does…
