Keeping track of websites, articles, gray literature, and books for scholarly research can be difficult and require complex systems or multiple systems

A Potential Solution… “ Social Bookmarking” sites allow you to share links to webpages with others (either specific people or the general public) i.e. http:// del.icio.us Many social bookmarking sites only work with open websites, but now there are free academic bookmarking sites that allow access to scholarly articles (even those from subscription databases) Increasingly these sites serve multiple functions : reference managers (including citation styles), discovery/ search engines, delivery/fufillment services, recommendation/suggestion engines, and collaborative spaces .
